Human Skeletal Remains Found in D’iberville

Human skeletal remains were found in a wooded area off of Mallet Road in D’iberville, prompting police to scour the scene after getting the call just before 2 this afternoon.
Now investigators and the Harrison County coroner are trying to figure out who they belong to and how they got there.
News 25’s Kendra Turley joins us live with the details.
Units that responded to the wooded area confirm that these are in fact human remains. They couldn’t reveal much about the remains but they did confirm that the remains are those of an adult.
D’Iberville police, in conjunction with the Harrison County Coroner’s Office, recovered all remains and evidence from the scene which will be sent to Jackson for further examination and identification.
Coroner Gary Hargrove said, “Whether it’s male or female will be determined from the crime lab. Once they do that then we can move forward from there. We’ve began gathering information throughout the afternoon to send to Jackson to help with that process.”
Units were on the scene from 1:42 to about 4:30 trying to gather as much information as possible.
