Human remains found in Ellis County

A lab at the University of North Texas will help identify the human remains found in Ellis County, south of Dallas.

A hunter found the bones Saturday afternoon in the town of Alma. They were on a non-address piece of land that has some crops and a small wooded area.

The Ellis County Sheriff’s Office responded along with several other agencies. They are investigating the case as a homicide.

UNT’s Center for Human Identification will hopefully make a positive identification.
