    Human remains found in national forest

    Aug. 5, 2014 — Kentucky State Police received a call from a Ginseng Digger about 9 p.m. Sunday saying he found what looked like a human skull off KY 799 in the Daniel Boone National Forest.

    Rowan County Coroner John Northcutt arrived on the scene and soon verified that the skull was human.

    Authorities were on the scene until 3 a.m. Monday and resumed investigating the area at dawn Monday.

    “We also found articles of clothing and some other human bones,” said Northcutt. “We will continue to search the area and do recovery work to attempt to locate any more remains.”

    The remains were found in a very remote area, according to Northcutt. It is off the Big Perry Fire Trail access road.

    “U.S. Forest Service personnel have had to come in and clear brush in order for us to have full access to the scene,” said Northcutt. “It is very rugged terrain that is now secured and was monitored overnight by KSP troopers.”

    Northcutt will be taking the remains to Frankfort for the state medical examiner to attempt to make a positive identification.

    “By the conditions it looks like the remains have been out here for several years,” said Northcutt. “We do have some leads on a potential identification but will not be releasing that information until it is confirmed.”

    Working with Northcutt and the KSP at the scene are the U.S. Forest Service police, Rowan County Sheriff's Department and the Route 377 Volunteer Fire Department.
