Skeletal Remains Found In Liberty County.
approximately noon on Sunday, August 28th, owners of property on
Road 3556 in the Grand San Jacinto Sub-Division off FM 1010 near the City of
Plum Grove, Texas in north Liberty County reported the discovery of human
skeletal remains. The owners, who had not visited their property for almost two
months had returned in order to clear brush from the land when they found the
remains and called authorities.
to Liberty County Sheriff’s lead Investigator Sgt. Josh Cummins, it appears
from the preliminary investigation, that animals had scavenged the remains but
a human skull and several bones were located in the immediate and surrounding
area. Due to the advanced stage of decomposition and lack of other physical
evidence at the scene, it was not possible to identify the remains as male or
female nor any signs that would indicate injuries or foul play. The remains
were found off a new road that has not, as yet, been numbered or named within
the county thus the only designation is “Road” 3556 in the new sub-division.
#6 Justice of the Peace, Judge Ralph Fuller responded to the scene to conduct
the inquest. He later ordered an autopsy which should be completed within the
week to determine a possible cause of death, the sex of the remains and any
other evidence that might be available to identify the remains. At the present
time, the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office has no report of a missing person
that might fit within the time frame of the skeletal remains condition but the
investigation is still on-going. (End)
