Autopsy of Miller County human remains expected to reveal unanswered questions
An autopsy performed Wednesday on human remains found in Miller County is expected to answer questions.
The remains were discovered in a rural area Monday by a resident of the county. It is unknown how long the remains had been at the location, or if the remains belong to a male or female.
Sheriff Louie Gregoire said few details are being released as investigators work the active case.
"First off, we have to figure out if it's natural causes, homicide, or anything like that," he said.
"Obviously that's what we're working on now and we don't want to muddy the water with any persons we have to speak with or anything like that," he said, "that's why we're not releasing much information."
Sheriff Gregoire said he expects more information to be released later in the week.
"We don't want to give details away that somebody may already know or may not know."
The sheriff said no missing persons report have recently been submitted in Miller County.
