Possible Human Remains Found Next To Gun On Private Land

A man found what looks like a human bone next to a gun in his pasture. Msgt. Gary Knight with the Oklahoma City Police Department said, "Police were notified that a man, who lives near the 8200 block of Piedmont Road, found a pistol out in a field, along with what he believes to be a human bone." In addition, one of the landowners said it was their dogs who found what they believe is a human skull next to the gun.

Knight went on to say, "Officers went out there, had a look. Today, the homicide unit went out there along with the medical examiner to try to determine what happened." Police investigators are still trying to figure out if they are human remains and the cause of death.

Knight continued, "Sometimes, that's very difficult when all you have is skeletal remains, but that's certainly something they're very good at. So, that's where we stand right now. We're kind of in a holding pattern to wait and see what they can tell us."

Currently, the police department does not believe it's foul play. Knight added, "We know that there are various homeless camps around the city. There's one not too far from there, so it's possible one of those guys may have passed away out there."

The landowners were stunned stating this is not normal for the area.
