Skeletal remains, wallet, ID cards found in remote area of Grayson Lake

State police said Tuesday they discovered a wallet and identification cards near skeletal remains in a secluded area of Grayson Lake near Clifty Creek.

However, police were not convinced the identification belonged to the person whose remains were found Sunday. The body had not been identified Tuesday pending an autopsy at the state medical examiner's office in Frankfort.

"There's no way for us to know if the wallet belonged to the individual or not," said Trooper Michael Murriell, spokesman for the state police post in Ashland.

A cause of death also had not been established Tuesday.

Murriell said the decomposed body was found by hikers in the remote and heavily wooded area in Carter County.

State police were investigating.
