The Marion County Sheriff’s Office received information that human bones were discovered in a wooded area just north of Ft. McCoy on County Road 315 in Marion County.

The Special Investigations Unit responded along with their Evidence Unit and the Medical Examiner’s Office to investigate the discovery and try to determine the victims identity and cause of death.


At this time, detectives do not have much to go on, but are hoping that the Medical Examiner can uncover the mystery of the human remains.
