    Evidently, the remains have only been there for weeks so it would have to be someone who went missing either late 2014 or this year. Makes me wonder if there was a report.

    The Burke County medical examiner estimates the person died a matter of weeks ago, the sheriff added. Investigators don’t yet know the age of the person, or if the skull belonged to a man or a woman.

    I thought for a brief moment, before reading the medical examiner's comments, that it could be Heather Elvis, Myrtle Beach is only 4 hrs from there.... I know that seems far to some but if you wanted to hide a body, I would drive as far away from my house as possible to dispose of it.

    Also says authorities at the time were "investigating" a missing Burke County person to discover whether that person might be a match...
