BALDWIN COUNTY, Ala. (WPMI) The Baldwin County Sheriff's Office says human remains that were found under the General W.K. Wilson Bridge have been sent to an anthropologist at the University of West Florida to be examined.
The bones and skull were found February 16, off the Lizard Creek and Mobile River under the northbound lanes of the bridge.
The skull has an apparent bullet home, according to Captain Steve Arthur. He said the bones appeared to be fairly weathered, indicating they had been there for some time.
The sheriff's office is hoping the anthropologist can determine the person's race, sex and age. Sheriff Huey "Hoss" Mack said there is DNA on the skull, and it could be enough to positively identify the person using a DNA database.
The sheriff's office is investigating the the death as a homicide.
