Body Found in Wake County Might Be Accident Victim

Posted November 29, 1996 12:00 a.m. EST

— Investigators say human remains found in a soybean field Wednesday in southern Wake County may be tied to a car accident two months ago.

A farmer found skeletal remains in the field Wednesday night. They were found about 50 feet from the scene of a Sept. 20 car accident.

In that accident, a car stolen a day or so earlier from Raleigh flipped several times at a sharp curve in the road. By the time troopers arrived, one injured man had been transported to the hospital. They learned a second man had left the scene.

Authorities believe the remains found Wednesday may be those of a third man thrown from the car in the accident.
