    Human bones found in woods
    LUMBERTON - Agents with the State Bureau of Investigation this morning were gathering evidence from some woods where human bones were found Tuesday night.
    Sheriff's Maj. Howard Branch said lawmen do not have an identity of the person whose bones were found, and he did not know if the dead person was a male or a female.
    He said deputies went to the scene, a wooded area off Cabinet Shop Road near U.S. 74 West, about midnight on Tuesday after three men reported that they had stumbled across the bones.
    Branch didn't know the names of the men or why they were in the area.
    Branch did not want to characterize the condition of the bones, saying that deputies “secured” the scene but did not disturb it so that it would be intact when forensics experts from the SBI arrived. He said the area was in thick woods, about 75 yards from the nearest home.
    Branch said that he hopes an identification can be made by using dental records or DNA. He said he was uncertain if there was clothing or other evidence at the scene that might help with the identification.
    He said that the Sheriff's Office does have a “theory” about the discovery.
    “We're thinking it may be a person from that area ...,” he said. “There's one in that area that has been reported missing.”
    Branch did not want to provide the name of the person who has been reported missing.

    I think the remains were identified as Lisa Hohman an endangered runaway from Maxton, NC.

    No link but it might be this article
    http://robesonian.com/view/full_story/1653656/article-Human-bones-found-in-woods?

    It says three men found bones off Cabinet Shop Road in Lumberton on Tuesday night. Unsure which Tuesday as it's only dated "three years ago".

    However, I think this thread deals with the same case.
    Identified! NC - Human Remains Found in Woods Near Maxton, 1 Jan 2008 - Lisa Hohman - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community


    It's a bit confusing with Maxton and Lumberton and the weirdly dated articles and I initially thought it was two different cases but I think it works out.

    http://robesonian.com/view/full_story/1653749/article-Bones-ID-d-as-Hohman-s?

    She was found on New Year's Day and 01/01/2008 was Tuesday. The addresses given
    are different but it turns out that Cabinet Shop Road and Jacobs Road have an intersection.

    Cabinet Shop Rd, Rowland, NC 28383 to 750 Jacobs Rd, Maxton, NC 28364 - Google Maps

    Also, this article about the discovery near her home says three men found the bones.

    Her missing poster and information that the case was still unsolved in 2009.

    I find it a bit odd that the dogs with the dog pen 10 feet away from the body wouldn't have found it sooner.
