UPDATED @ 12:00 AM
Hartford Police Chief Annie Ward has confirmed they received a call earlier this afternoon of possible human remains found under the bridge at Hurricane Creek. When Hartford Police Officers arrived they did find some bones.
Hartford Police called in Geneva County Sheriff Department, Alabama Bureau of Investigation ( ABI ) and agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation ( FBI ). The scene is being treated as a crime scene and investigated properly.
Investigators think the bones could possibly be that of an animal and not human. However, you are only on a scene one time so the scene has to be worked as a murder scene until law enforcement investigators find out different.
At this time THERE IS NO CONFIRMATION the bones are indeed human bones. All investigators are for sure of, they have found some bones.
It will take several days for confirmation.
