BAGDAD, Ariz. (AP) - Yavapai County authorities say they’re investigating the discovery of human remains in a remote area of Bagdad.

County sheriff’s deputies were dispatched last Sunday to an area off Highway 93 to meet with a rancher who reported finding a human skull.

The rancher eventually found other bones nearby and once deputies confirmed the remains were human, sheriff’s detectives and evidence technicians were assigned to investigate and collect evidence.

Deputies located a campsite under a tree and found clothing, a backpack and personal hygiene items likely connected to the human remains.

The items collected are being examined and are expected to aid in the identification.

The remains were released to the custody of the county medical examiner for analysis and identification in light of evidence recovered from the scene.
