Human remains found in national park in NE Ohio

PENINSULA, Ohio (AP) — Hikers found a jawbone in Ohio’s Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) 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.

Chief investigator Gary Guenther with the medical examiner’s office says there’s been no determination on body size, gender, race or age.

Park service spokeswoman Jennie Vasarhelyi (va-sar-REL’-ee) says the jawbone was spotted by hikers late Monday off a trail in Boston Township south of Peninsula.
