Louisa Sheriff's Office Working to Identify Human Remains
The Louisa County Sheriff's Office is working to identify skeletal remains found in a wooded section of the Gum Spring area.
A man who found the remains along a trail just off Shepherd Spring Drive called the Sheriff's Office around 10:30 a.m. Saturday.
Investigators say it appears the remains are those of a man who died of a self-inflicted wound, but they are waiting on confirmation. We’re told the medical examiner in Richmond was unable to come to a conclusion and is sending the remains to an anthropologist.
A set of keys were found with the remains, leading investigators to believe the man drove a late 1990s to early 2000s Jeep.
The Sheriff's Office says the remains could be from as early as 2007.
