Skeletal remains found in Terry

TERRY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

 Hinds County deputies are investigating the discovery of skeletal remains found in Terry on Saturday.

Hinds County Coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart said she got the call around noon that the remains had been discovered in a wooded cow pasture off Green Drive.

Grisham-Stewart said the remains were completely skeletal, indicating the body had likely been there for months.

Because of that, she said identification will take some time.

“They'll do the process of obtaining dental records, DNA if necessary,” Grisham-Stewart said. “I believe we'll be successful with dental records in this case," Stewart said.

The coroner said there's no reason to suspect foul play at this point.

The Hinds County Sheriff's Department is handling the investigation.
