Human remains found in Walker County

Posted: Updated:

The Walker County Sheriff's Office is investigating human remains found Monday and Wednesday of this week just off Jeep Trail near K. D. Byrd Station Road in Quinton, according to Chief Deputy James Painter.

Walker County District Attorney Bill Adair says human remains were found Monday and more were found Wednesday in the same area after members of the District Attorney's office and the Sheriff's Department went to investigate. 

Adair says it appears the remains have been there since February 2011. He also says investigators believe they know who the person was, but will not release that information until dental records come back.

Neighbors in the area who did not want to talk on camera say this is very shocking news, given the fact it is such a remote, heavily wooded area.
