Bones found at cemetery

A person called the Platte County Sheriff’s Office on Friday evening to report the discovery of what they believed to be human bones and clothing. The find was made at the The Glowing Graveyard near Columbus. A deputy from the Platte County Sheriff’s Office responded to the call, only to find that the bones were from an old deer carcass, according to Sheriff Ed Wemhoff. The Sheriff said he believed the discovered clothing was unrelated to the bones and most likely left behind by teenagers who have been known to hangout at the cemetery.
