Human remains found near Mount Rainier National Park

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — An investigation is underway after human remains were discovered near the entrance to Mount Rainier National Park. Pierce County sheriff’s deputies said loggers found what appeared to be human bones Thursday in a remote site on private land above the Carbon River. Investigators said the remains were scattered due to logging and possibly animal activity. Detectives said they used hand tools to search through logging debris, recovering a skull, several other bones, remnants of clothing and a rifle. The Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office will determine the person’s gender, age and other identifying details.
