By Adam Kamerer
Human skeletal remains were found off Johntown Road in Ozark on Wednesday, according to the Dale County Coroner’s Office.
John Cawley, Deputy Coroner, says “Two young men riding four-wheelers discovered the remains just off Johntown Road in a wooded area.” The remains are reportedly in a decayed state.
Cawley says the remains have decayed and have been sent to the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences for examinations. When asked about the gender of the remains, Cawley stated that the Coroner’s Office was not releasing that information at this time.
Todd Dorriety of Ozark Police Department is lead investigator on the case, according to Cawley. Dorriety could not be reached for comment at time of publishing.
