Man finds human remains in yard

September 29, 2005

Valdosta - A South Georgia man made a startling discovery while working in his yard Wednesday.

Mel Samuelson was cleaning up flower beds at his home in on West Park Avenue when he found what appeared to be a human jaw bone and teeth. He took the bones to a dentist, who said it looked like human remains.

The police department sent the bones to a forensic anthropologist who will determine how old they are and where they may have come from.

"The thought occurred to me that maybe it was an Indian relic or old Indian grave, other than that I have no speculations as to what it may be," said Samuelson.

Those results should be back in about two months.
