    Hunter stumbles across skeletal remains

    HARRIS COUNTY, GA (WTVM) - A day in the Harris County woods ended with a grim discovery for one local turkey hunter.

    Instead of finding a trophy gobbler on Memorial Day, he stumbled across a skull investigators say appears to be human.

    The discovery was made in the woods off Georgia Highway 18 in Harris County, not far from Interstate 185 South Exit 34 for Pine Mountain/West Point.

    an update:
    Since then, searchers have scoured the area around I-185 and Ga. 18 — near Exit 34 — finding leg bones, a skull and part of a pelvis.

    “An additional pelvic bone was found (Wednesday),” said Rodney Wall, Georgia Bureau of Investigation special agent in charge. “We don’t know if this is a man or a woman. We have no idea on race at this time.”

    The human bones found off Interstate 185 this week have not been identified, but authorities hope DNA tests will offer more clues about the remains.

    “We have to get more information from the lab on the race, sex and origin,” said Rodney Wall, Georgia Bureau of Investigation special agent in charge. More at link: http://www.ledger-enquirer.com/news/story/732837.html

    I think that this is the same UI. The article says she was found on May 25 2009, not May 27 as in NAMUS, but everything else looks correct.

    It kind of concerns/puzzles me that the GBI has this UID on its web site twice, with different discovery dates listed...? I'm sure there's a reason, but...?

    https://gbi.georgia.gov/case/unidentified-remains-326

    https://gbi.georgia.gov/case/unidentified-remains-325


    At the second link, its says investigators at one time thought the remains might be those of a missing woman from Talbot County (GA) but DNA ruled that out.


    Also wanted to point out that where the remains were found is at the Georgia-Alabama boundary -- so she easily could have been from Alabama.
