DeSoto Co. investigators closer to identifying human bones

Investigators in DeSoto County, Mississippi, are closer to identifying human bones found wrapped in a blanket near the Coldwater River. They now know the bones belong to an African-American female between the ages of 30 and 50.

Two men searching for scrap metal discovered the bones last Saturday.

Investigators are working with only a partial skelton that includes a rib cage, one arm and several fingers.

The DeSoto County coroner said the bones may have been there for longer than a year.
