FBI assists probe of human remains found on W.Va. mountain

July 29, 2019

WELCH, W.Va. (AP) — The FBI is assisting local authorities with an investigation into human remains found on a West Virginia mountain over the summer.

McDowell County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy James E. Muncy Jr. told the Bluefield Daily Telegraph on Friday that the FBI has since discovered more related evidence near Berwind Lake. Muncy previously told the newspaper that the remains were from a recent death.

The remains were sent over the summer to the State Medical Examiner’s office in Charleston, which Muncy says has yet to release any information regarding the remains’ possible identity. It’s unclear when the medical examiner’s office will release any information about the remains.
