Human remains found in Daniel Boone forest in Rowan County

Kentucky State Police are trying to identify human remains that were discovered Sunday night in the Daniel Boone National Forest.

Troopers from the Morehead post were called to a wooded area of Ky. 799 in northern Rowan County at 8:45 p.m. after a mushroom hunter found a skull and clothing, public affairs officer Joe Veeneman said.

Police will try to determine what happened and hope to make an identification through dental records, he said.
