PIERCETON, Ind. (AP) — Police in Kosciusko County say human remains discovered near a swamp have been sent to a forensic center in Fort Wayne for analysis.
The unidentified human remains were found Thursday by witnesses who alerted police after stumbling across them while walking along the edge of a field near a swamp several hundred yards from State Road 13 in Kosciusko County.
The county’s sheriff’s department says authorities examined the remains and used state-of-the-art technology to search the surrounding area for potential evidence.
County Coroner Anthony Ciriello says the remains would be transported to the Northeast Indiana Forensic Center in Fort Wayne for further examination.
