Pitt County, N.C. — Pitt County sheriff’s investigators said early Monday they have found human remains in the eastern part of the county.
The remains were discovered Sunday morning after authorities received a tip Saturday afternoon. The tip led to an “intense search” by deputies and K-9 units, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.
The remains were badly decomposed and sent to the medical examiner’s office for identification.
More information is expected to be released late Monday morning.
