KBI: Human bones found in LV Co

(KAIR)--The discovery of human bones, found this past weekend by pedestrians walking in a Leavenworth County community, is under investigation.

According to a release from the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, that agency, in conjunction with the Lansing Police Department, is "conducting a death investigation after human remains were found near a creek in Lansing."

The release explains that it was just after 5:00 Sunday evening, when persons walking along a creek bed in the 900 block of Lansing's North Main Street, found the skeletal remains, calling 911 to report the find. Lansing Police responded, requesting KBI assistance Sunday evening, with agents and the Crime Scene Response Team arriving in Lansing.

According to the KBI, "the identity of the deceased person has not been confirmed," with the release noting that "positive identification may take longer than typical cases due to the condition of the remains." An autopsy has been scheduled.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact the KBI at 1-800-KS-CRIME. or, online, at kbi.ks.gov.
