    WI - Kenosha Co., Skeletal remains in ditch near I-94, Apr'16 - Hozia Jackson


    [T]he Kenosha Police Department recovered the skeleton just off I-94, near Highway 158. Lt. Brad Hetlet said police donít know anything about who it belonged to.

    He said the remains will go to the Center for Human Identification at the University of North Texas...

    The bones were found about 12 miles from the Abandoned Haunted House. Visitors usually attend owner Corey Stephensí haunted house in search of entertainment, but it sits on a stretch of interstate that has seen some real-life horror. Itís been a dumping ground for murderers looking to get rid of bodies.
