Skeletal Remains Uncovered During Construction

It was determined later in the afternoon that the skeleton from the nineteenth century and not related to any current investigation.

“It came as a big surprise to dig up that guy,” said construction supervisor Tom Coolly. “We had just started a clean trench with the backhoe and up comes this skull, like it was smiling at us.”

Golan County Sheriff Butch Anderson stated that the remains were clearly not recent and anecdotal evidence supports that the individual had been buried sometime in the 1800s. The remains and other evidence uncovered have been turned over to the ETU archeology department for review.
