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.
