Police Continue Recovery Of Remains Outside Camp Atterbury

Last updated on Thursday, May 8, 2008

(EDINBURGH) - Police say it might take a month to complete a report on human remains discovered in a shallow grave near Camp Atterbury.

The Johnson County sheriff's office says a mushroom hunter found the grave last month. It was about 2 feet deep, and animals had partially unearthed the body.

Police are working with a forensic anthropologist from the University of Indianapolis to recover the remains and compare them to missing person records.

Camp Atterbury is about 20 miles south of Indianapolis and used to train troops for combat in Iraq and Afghanistan.
