    MT - Lewis & Clark Co., Human remains in bags, Oct'11 - Mike Crites

    Lewis & Clark County Sheriff Leo Dutton says Forest Service official were out doing area checks on Forest Service property across the road from the Prickly Pear Sportsmen's Association shooting range when they stumbled across a suspicious bag of bones.

    ...

    "It appeared to me that the bones that were found were of a human nature. I talked with Dr. Kemp at the State Crime Lab and asked him to come to the scene because of the very unusualness of this. Upon his arrival, approximately 6 pm this evening, he confirms that these are human remains," Nelson says. ...

    It is unknown whether the bones are male or female, or how many are involved.

    They are not clean and are confirmed to be adult bones.

    I am interpreting "Not Clean" to mean that they haven't been there for very long.

    Human remains found on MacDonald Pass on Wednesday have been identified as that of an adult male.

    ...

    Coroner Nelson says he thinks they can rule out anyone missing longer than a year; he explained, "People who are missing, people that have been well over a year, I think, we can basically exclude those people."

    Lewis and Clark County officials are still trying to identify the human remains found in black trash bags near MacDonald Pass west of Helena three weeks ago.

    Coroner Mickey Nelson tells the Independent Record it appears the bone samples contain DNA, but he hasn't received any test results.

    The only male from that area I can find missing under a year is Steven Haze Bell from Flathead County which is fairly close by.

    Gotta love it when they say:

    "The man's death is being investigated as a homicide." Officials believe the bones had been on the pass for less than a year when they were found on Oct. 5.

    I would find it difficult to put your own body in trash bags.

    The remains were IDd as those of John Michael Crites. Although IMO the coroner has a strange way of saying it (BBM).

    http://helenair.com/news/local/bones...9bb2963f4.html

    Authorities say the bones found in October on MacDonald Pass are those of John Michael Crites, who has been missing from his home northwest of Helena since last summer.
    Lewis and Clark County Sheriff Leo Dutton said Monday evening he received a call from the state crime lab reporting the match of DNA taken from the bones to Crites.
    ...
    "We feel very comfortable that these are the remains of (Crites)," Lewis and Clark County Coroner Mickey Nelson said.
    Crites, who lived alone, was part of an ongoing land dispute, and had been involved in lawsuits with neighbors regarding access to land near his home.

    Lil'E,

    I have no experience in sleuthing, I found this thread via a web search for Steven Bell. Can I ask how you found the information on him showing the date he went missing and such? I found nothing on his status of missing on the Dept. of Justice website for Montana.

    Thank you, Lisa

    Human skull found near MacDonald Pass

    By SANJAY TALWANI Independent Record Tuesday, October 2, 2012 1:00 am

    A human skull was found west of MacDonald Pass last week.

    Powell County Sheriff Scott Howard said Monday that the skull, found Wednesday near the intersection of U.S. Route 12 and Mullan Pass Road, probably dates to a death within the last few years.

    “There was a skull found and other human remains found,” Howard said Monday.

    He declined to disclose further details, saying the investigation is ongoing.

    Lewis and Clark Undersheriff David Rau said the sheriff’s office is assisting Powell County with the investigation.

    Authorities would not say whether they believe the skull is related to the death of John “Mike” Crites, ...

    I'm not finding it either! All I found was this article: http://www.dailyinterlake.com/news/l...cc4c002e0.html

    If you are a friend or family member and need help, please contact me privately and I'll do what I can!
