Coconino County Sheriff’s investigating human remains found in woods

Earlier this month, the Coconino County Sheriff’s detectives responded to a wooded area north of the Baderville neighborhood, along Highway-180, where a hunter reported finding suspicious bones, possibly human remains. Detectives responded and determined that the items located by the hunter were in fact human. During the recovery of the remains, detectives were able to establish that suspicious circumstances were involved and are investigating this incident as a homicide. Detectives and the Coconino County Medical Examiner’s Office are in the process of identifying the remains. Preliminary autopsy indicates the unidentified person is a male about 5’10”-6’01” with a non-muscular build, possibly 35-55 years of age. He was wearing a t-shirt, dark colored shorts with a black leather belt that had a black nylon utility pouch on it and sandals. If you have any information about this case, contact the Sheriff’s office.
