CROSSVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Authorities in Cumberland County have a death investigation on their hands after human remains were found Saturday evening.

According to Cumberland County Assistant District Attorney Gary McKenzie, police received a report late Saturday night about human remains being discovered at Cumberland Mountain State Park.

Because it was too dark at that point, they waited until Sunday to begin investigating the scene.

At this point there are still a lot of unknowns, but authorities believe the remains to be more than a year old.

The investigation is ongoing.
