Five researchers with UT’s Forensic Anthropology Center along with employees of the Kentucky state Medical Examiner’s office, Kentucky State Police detectives and the Logan County Sheriff’s Office returned to a site in Auburn, Kentucky, on December 7 where duck hunters found what appears to be parts of a human skeleton.

The Bowling Green Daily News reported that hunters discovered the bones in a thicket of about 20 to 30 feet from a pond. Officials planned to drain the pond and then continue searching the area where the water was standing for more remains.
