The Monroe County Medical Examiner is studying what appears to be human remains found at 3 p.m. Sunday in a wooded area near the south end of the Boca Chica Bridge.
The remains were found by a passerby who was walking his dog at approximately Mile Marker 5.5.
Deputy Antonio Guieb responded and found more bones, all of which appeared to be human, in a campsite.
Detectives responded shortly thereafter. The bones were handed over to the Medical Examiner.
The investigation remains ongoing.
