Greenbrier County police investigate remains of man

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS (AP) — Greenbrier County authorities are investigating the remains of a man found in a wooded area outside White Sulphur Springs.

Sheriff Jan Cahill said Monday at a news conference that the remains are those of a young to middle-aged man. He says the remains were scattered and had been at the site for at least year, and possibly longer.

He says a man looking through trash for glass bottles found the remains on Friday.

Cahill says clothing was found but there was no identification, such as a driver’s license.

The remains were sent to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Charleston.

Investigators are searching databases of missing persons to see whether any match the remains’ description.
