(LILLIAN, Ala.) Investigators have left the scene after nearly three days of searching for clues after the discovery of what are described as human remains. The bones were discovered in a remote area of Lillian off of Route Road a dirt road south of Highway 99.
Late today search and rescue dogs were added to the investigation. It's possible not all the bones were recovered. Investigators say they may have enough to make a positive DNA identification. Buford Bailey lives on Route Road. He remembers the day the moment the remains were found by a 14 year old neighbor.
" Three of us adults got together. The neighbors here. We got together and looked at it, didn't touch it but we looked at the parts and then we called 911," said Bailey.
Deputies have been here for nearly three days collecting evidence. Daylight was a big help. On this rural road at nightfall it's pitch dark and you can't see anything.
Neighbor Larry Price says he's glad things are wrapping up and that deputies are gone from the scene. " I hope they find out what happened and who did it. You know a lot of times they don't find who done it. It's a shame," said Price.
Neighbors say in the end it'll be all about closure for the victim's family. "It's a good thing, It's always a good thing yes," said Bailey,
The Sheriff's Office says they believe they know who the victim is and they have ideas on who a suspect might be. They gave no additional information.
