Human Remains Found in Woodburn


ALLEN COUNTY OFFICIALS ARE DEEP INTO AN INVESTIGATION TO FIND OUT THE IDENTITY. WANE 15’S KAITOR KAY WAS AT THE SCENE TODAY. KAITOR, WHAT DID YOU SEE? WHEN WE GOT TO THERE, THERE WAS A 50 BY 50 FOOT WOODED AREA BLOCKED OFF BY CRIME TAPE. THE REMAINS WERE BEING GUARDED BY A SHERIFF’S DEPUTY. ON THIS COUNTRY ROAD IN WOODBURN, IN THIS WOODED AREA NEAR THE 19- THOUSAND BLOCK OF DOERMAN ROAD… A GROUP OF PEOPLE CAME UPON A PILE OF BONES AND CALLED POLICE. “THE DEPUTY CORONER THAT WAS THERE WAS ABLE TO MAKE THE DETERMINATION THEY ARE HUMAN.” ALLEN COUNTY DEPUTY CORONOR MICHAEL BURRIS WOULDN’T TELL US SPECIFICALLY WHAT WAS FOUND, BUT SAYS IT WAS EASY TO TELL THAT THE REMAINS WERE HUMAN, AND NOT ANIMAL. “SKULLS ARE PRETTY EVIDENT AND SO ARE PELVISES, THE LONG BONES ARE UNIQUE ALSO BETWEEN HUMANS AND ANIMALS.” WE’RE TOLD THE REMAINS ARE “SKELETONIZED” AND WERE FOUND BY SOME PEOPLE WALKING THROUGH THE WOODS. THEY HAVEN’T IDENTIFIED THE REMAINS YET. IT’S ALSO NOT CLEAR HOW THEY GOT THERE, HOW LONG THEY’VE BEEN THERE, OR HOW THE PERSON DIED. BURRIS SAYS NATURE HAS DEFINITELY TAKEN IT’S TOLL ON THE REMAINS. “ONCE ANYTHING GOES DOWN, ANY ANIMAL OR HUMAN GOES DOWN, MOTHER NATURE THEN TAKES ON STRIPPING THE BONES. THAT’S JUST WHAT HAPPENS. YOU’LL HAVE INSECT ACTIVITY THAT STARTS ALMOST IMMEDIATELY. YOU’LL HAVE PREDATORS THAT COME IN – HAWKS, CROWS, RACCOONS, MICE. EVERYTHING THEN USES THOSE REMAINS FOR THEIR OWN NEED. I WOULD SAY A GOOD GUESTIMATION WOULD BE THOSE REMAINS HAVE BEEN THERE FOR AT LEAST 6 MONTHS. THE UNIVERSITY OF INDIANAPOLIS ANTHROPOLOGY DEPARTMENT IS BEING CALLED IN TO HELP EXCAVATE THE REMAINS. THEY SHOULD BE ON SITE BY THE END OF THE WEEK. INVESTIGATORS WILL USE THE REMAIN’S DENTAL WORK OR DNA TO MAKE A MATCH
