Boys Camping Find Old Human Bones
Posted: 6:06 am EDT April 18, 2011
NEWNAN, Ga. -- Authorities in Coweta County are looking into the discovery of what appears to be a shallow grave that was uncovered by two teenage boys.
The boys reported finding the bones Friday night when they attempted to set up a camp site.
Investigators with the Coweta County Sheriff's Office and a team from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said the remains appear to be decades old.
~~Article says that the remains are located behind a house, 25 to 30 yards inside in a heavily wooded area.
May I please ask if any one knows if these remains were male or female or any update on these remains found.There was appararantly two sets of remains found in Coweta County I think.

COWETA COUNTY, Ga. - Two Coweta County boys found a body in the backyard Friday night while setting up for a camp out. Investigators said the human remains had been hidden in a shallow grave for years.
From the article.
Investigators said the remains could have been there since the 1980s.
I seem to remember a book "Murder in Coweta County". My DH and family are from that area.
Two sets of remains are mentioned in this later article.I'm interested if there is any new information on these remains found.The 2nd set of remains found in this article.
This week's discovery isn't the only find of human remains in Coweta that the GBI is working to identify.
Authorities are continuing their efforts to identify human remains found in the 900 block of Welcome-to-Arnco Road in April.
A 14-year-old made the gruesome discovery while digging a fire pit about 30 yards beyond the wood line behind the family home. Inside a shallow grave, the teenager found a black trash bag that contained a human skull and other remains.
Authorities believe the remains are evidence of a decades-old homicide.
Yarbrough said recently that the GBI is testing DNA submitted by relatives of a couple of missing persons that meet the criteria in this case.
"At this point we have our guesses," said Yarbrough in a previous interview. He added that there's a "short stack" of possible cases that sheriff's investigators are considering at this point.
There is more said on this article.They should know by now if they are male or female ect....Right?
The thread title says August but according to the quote in the OP it should be April.
I don't see a profile for this person in NamUs, NCMEC, or the Doe network... I wonder if they solved it?
I emailed the reporter who wrote this article to find out if there have been any updates. I will post what I find out...
I just see that there is another thread for this. Can we merge them? TIA
An article I hadn't read before...
Still no NamUs profile and no response from the reporter...
The decedent has been identified as Ann Margaret Berry (AKA Ann Lee). 29 of Arnco GA, reported missing on July 31, 1991.
I am from Newnan-- and I'm in my 20's, and all I really remember about the Arnco area are recent meth busts-- what was the area like in the 90's?
Like, I remember reading about the kids finding the body, and I immediately thought it was drug related, but that's probably not the case if Ms. Berry was reported missing so long ago.
All that time...
