Human remains found in Cuyahoga Valley National Park

 

PENINSULA (AP) — Hikers found a jawbone in Ohio’s Cuyahoga Valley National Park and searchers then found additional human remains including a partial skull.

The discovery of the human remains and clothing was under investigation Tuesday as a possible homicide in the park located between Cleveland and Akron.

The investigation involves the National Park Service, FBI agents and the Summit County medical examiner.

Park service spokeswoman Jennie Vasarhelyi  says the jawbone was spotted by hikers late Monday off a trail in Boston Township south of Peninsula.
