    Two volunteers with the Friends of Deckers Creek, were cleaning a camp site along the Rail-Trail when they discovered what they believed to be human remains inside of an old coke oven in a wooded area near the Rail-Trail, police said.

    Well, now I know what a coke oven is.
    Hopefully these earthly remains will match to a known missing person.
    Prayers for the family.

    Depending on how long the remains have been there, could this be a possibility?
    The Doe Network: Case File 2754DFWV
    In short: Mother and daughter dissappear from Jane Lew. One dog found dead at the house. One dog found alive near Stonewall Jackson Lake. Purse with items of both also near Stonewall Jackson Lake. Car found in Clarksburg. Stonewall Jackson Lake is south of the home, Clarksburg is north of the home. Morgantown is further up north.

    Wow - I know where that is. We traveled that road when my daughter went to Alderson Broaddus in WV. I68 and I79 intersect not too far from there.
