Washington state investigators find human skeletal remains

Washington state authorities say human skeletal remains have been found at an undisclosed location in Yakima County. The Yakima Herald reports the Yakima County coroner confirmed a skeleton was found, but the age, gender and ethnicity of the remains were not immediately known. Officials say an unmanned aircraft from Yakima Valley Emergency Management sent images of the remains to the Yakima County Sheriff’s Office, the Yakama Nation Police Department and the FBI. An emergency management spokesman says the FBI is called when there is a possibility of the death of a Native American, but that has not been confirmed.
