Shortly after lunch on Saturday, two hunters were in the area looking for deer shed antlers when they discovered what they believed to be human bones.

The Spencer County Sheriff’s Office initially received the 911 call and are now assisting the Indiana State Police Jasper Post with the investigation.

Indiana State Troopers will be on scene until an anthropologist arrives on Sunday to further process the crime scene.

A press conference was held 5:00 pm Sunday evening.

Please do not come to the area for questions or approach investigating law enforcement officers during this time. Troopers want to minimize the risk to motorists on US 231 by eliminating all non-essential personnel.
