Vermont police seeking to ID human remains found by hunter
WATERBURY, Vt. (AP) — Vermont law enforcement officials are working to identify human remains found by a hunter in Williamstown.
Police say that on Nov. 11, the hunter came across what appeared to be a lower jawbone.
Investigators collected the jawbone, which was taken to the office of the chief medical examiner in Burlington, where experts determined it was human.
The state police search team scoured the area around where the jawbone was found, but did not locate any additional human remains.
Police checked the remains against three men reporting missing between 2003 and last summer, but none matched.
Additional testing is underway, including DNA tests and the jawbone is being examined by an anthropologist.
Anyone who might have information about the case is asked to call the state police.
