Discovery of apparent human skeletal remains

A resident from the Beatrice area was walking in a rural area south of Beatrice and came upon some skeletal remains. He called the Gage County Sheriff’s Office and an investigator and a deputy responded to the area and met with the caller, who led them to apparent human skeletal remains.

The investigation of the case was coordinated with the Beatrice Police Department, investigators from the Nebraska State Patrol, and the Gage County Sheriff’s Office. The property owners in the area were made aware of the investigation and are fully cooperating with investigators.

The investigation is ongoing and further follow-up will be conducted by Gage County Sheriff’s Office investigators and investigators from other agencies. Evidence collected at the scene will be evaluated and if necessary, sent to the Nebraska State Patrol Crime Laboratory and/or to anthropologists at the Nebraska State Historical Society.
