Investigators working to identify human bones found Sunday in Jackson Township
The Jackson County Sheriff's Office, along with forensic experts, is attempting to identify the human remains which were discovered last Sunday, May 6, in a wooded area in Jackson Township.

Jackson County Sheriff Tedd Frazier told The Telegram Wednesday, May 9 that two mushroom hunters made the grisly discovery the previous Sunday afternoon off Raysville Road between Wildcat Hollow Road and Sour Run Road in Jackson Township. Jackson County Coroner Dr. Alice Frazier was called to the scene to examine the remains and she told The Telegram Wednesday that all that remained of the body were bones.

Representatives of the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation and Identification (BCII) and members of the regional Special Tactics and Response (STAR) team, based at Southern Ohio Correctional Facility at Lucasville, were also called to help search and process the scene and nearby area for possible evidence, but the sheriff says that work was completed Wednesday. As many as 30 persons took part in this effort.

The remains were sent to the Montgomery County Coroner's Office for further examination and analysis. Coroner Dr. Frazier stated that an anthropologist is to examine the remains in the hopes of determining a sex and a possible cause of death. Sheriff Frazier said Friday he was still awaiting the results of this examination and analysis.

Sheriff Frazier noted he is aware of a couple of missing persons in the local area, but said it would be impossible to tie the human remains to any specific person without further information from the forensic investigation.
