FLORENCE, Ariz. (AP) — Pinal County authorities say skeletal remains have been found in a desert area near Interstate 8.
They say a father and son reported finding the remains Wednesday while searching for meteorites.
A sheriff’s deputy accompanied them out to the area and found what appeared to be a skull and rib bones.
The deputy also reported finding scattered remnants of pants and a shirt near the bones.
Authorities say the skeletal remains have been sent to the county Medical Examiner’s Office for analysis.
