(Human bones found)…They were discovered Tuesday.

The County Coroner’s office says visitors from Alpine discovered the bones off Highway 78 and the San Felipe Wash. They reported the find to the Bureau of Land Management. The BLM reported the bones to the Coroner’s office. Deputy Coroner Frazier retrieved the bones. An Anthropologic Forensic will have to study the bones, in hopes an identification can be made, and a possible cause of death determined. The Coroner’s office did not speculate as to how long the bones had been in the area before they were discovered.
