Human Remains Found In Pasco County Woods

WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. (AP) — Authorities are investigating after human remains were found in a wooded area in southwest Florida.

Hunters called Pasco County Sheriff’s officials on Thursday after finding the remains.

Authorities said the remains were scattered by animals so it’s unclear whether they belong to a man or woman or how long they have been there. No clothes were found and investigators say it’s too early to determine if foul play was involved.

There is a homeless camp nearby, but it’s unclear if the victim was associated with the camp.
