    Shawnee County sheriff’s officials were investigating the discovery of human skeletal remains that were found Monday evening in a wooded area just west of Topeka, authorities said.

    Deputies were called Monday evening to an area just north and east of the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism office at 300 S.W. Wanamaker after an individual reported finding skeletal remains in the dense woods, said Shawnee County sheriff’s Lt. Harry Louderback.

    Sheriff’s deputies responded to the scene and removed the remains with the assistance of the Shawnee County Coroner’s Office, Louderback said. The skeletal remains were found on private property, Louderback said.

    The excavation of an area where human skeletal remains were found Monday just west of Topeka is complete, with no signs of foul play at the scene, Shawnee County sheriff’s officials said.

    “Although the investigation continues on scene, the excavation process is complete,” said sheriff’s Sgt. Todd Stallbaumer. “A majority of the human remains were able to be recovered. The remains are now in the custody of the Shawnee County Coroner’s Office.”

    Additional information is expected to be released after the Shawnee County Sheriff’s Office completes its investigation.
