    Deputies were dispatched after the remains were found by a Mohave County employee who reported the discovery to authorities.

    When the sheriff’s deputies arrived, they recovered the lower half of a human jaw and some long bones.
    The remains were turned over to the Mohave County Medical Examiner’s Office where identification and autopsy results are pending. Officials were unsure of the gender of the remains, as well as if the remains belonged to an adult or child, or how long the remains had been in the desert.

    ST. GEORGE — The Mohave County Medical Examiner’s Office has determined that human remains found on the Arizona Strip in June are likely hundreds of years old.
    The medical examiner’s investigators were unable to make a positive identification on the remains, but according to information released to the sheriff’s office, the remains “appeared to be ancient in origin,” Susan Callahan, the Mohave County Sheriff’s public information specialist, said Tuesday.

    Meredith Archer, investigative supervisor for the medical examiner’s office, said the remains belonged to an American Indian and were estimated to be “anywhere from several hundred to 1,000 years old.”
    Archer went on to say that her office is working with other agencies to determine which tribe the remains originated from, and once that determination is made the bones will be released back to the tribe for burial.
