On Sunday evening (November 29), Caldwell County Deputies responded to a report involving the discovery of human remains in a wooded area on Cheraw Road, near the entrance to the Caldwell County Landfill. An individual walking in a wooded area found the remains and contacted the Sheriff’s Office. Deputies then located the remains, but, due to weather and lighting conditions, the scene was secured until the next day.
On Monday, Investigators, with assistance from the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation, processed the scene and recovered the remains, which were then turned over to the Medical Examiner’s office for identification and an autopsy.
At this time, Investigators do not suspect foul play. The case remains active pending the Medical Examiner’s findings.
