BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Authorities say they're trying to identify skeletal remains that have been discovered in a wooded area in Bloomington.
Capt. Troy Thomas of the Monroe County Sheriff's Office tells The Herald-Times the remains found Monday on the city's east side are believed to be those of a missing person whose case the office was working on.
Bloomington Police Sgt. Pam Gladish says the remains appear to those of a male but investigators won't be certain until medical examiners have finished their work.
Preliminary results of the investigation indicated the remains were of a white male in his early 20s, police said.
Officials with the Bloomington Police Department and the Monroe County coroner's office did not believe the remains had any connection to the case of missing Indiana University student Lauren Spierer.
