Few details yet on human remains found in Fayetteville

Posted: Updated:
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -

During a news conference Wednesday, Fayetteville Police said they have very little information about human remains found on Tuesday.

Assistant Chief Charles Kimble explained a man walking along a railroad track found the skeletal remains Tuesday afternoon in the area of Winslow Street and Southern Avenue. The remains appeared to human he said.

Kimble said the remains were sent to the North Carolina Medical Examiner's Office. He said the bones did not immediately indicate anything about who's remains were found.

"It's too early at this point to tell. Of course we have to let science kick in," Kimble said. "We can't tell the sex. We can't tell the race. We know very little about the remains. Hopefully in the next 7 to 10 days we will get that report back. Then we can start working backwards in our investigation."

When asked specifically about if the remains could be those of Kelli Bordeaux, Kimble said there was no way to tell. Bordeaux has been missing since May 2012 and has been declared dead by the Army.

"It would be so unfair to speculate at this point, and when we get the report back we will know a lot more," Kimble said.

Officer found a skull, some teeth and other human bones. When the search of the area resumed around 7 a.m. Wednesday, investigators found more bones than were originally collected Tuesday. The additional bones were also sent to the medical examiner, Kimble said.

He explained there was no clothing found and not enough evidence to speculate about whether the person died there or was dragged there.

"A train comes through this area a lot. There's weather. There's heat. There's precipitation. There's a lot of things that come into play," Kimble explained. " So until we get that science back from the medical examiner, we'll know a lot more."
