Skeletal remains found in Crawford County woods


A GBI crime-scene unit and Crawford County deputies are investigating skeletal remains found in woods off Old Knoxville Road.

J.T. Ricketson, special agent in charge of the GBI's Perry office, says a property owner found the bones on Sunday.

He estimates that the bones had been there for several months up to two years. Ricketson said there is at least one missing-person case in Crawford during that time frame.

He said the Crawford County Sheriff's Office contacted the GBI, and the crime-scene unit has been on site since then.

Ricketson estimates that they've collected about 90 percent of the skeleton.

He said he believes the remains involve just one body, probably a man.

The scene is a remote wooded area about a mile off Old Knoxville Road, he said.

The Crawford County sheriff and coroner's office both declined comment on the case.
