Police release pics of items found near bones on golf course
GENESEE COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -
A chilling discovery has been confirmed at a local golf course, three weeks after bones were discovered on one of the course's holes.
Police in Flint said the bones discovered Dec. 13 are indeed human and now investigators are trying to figure who they belonged to and how long they were there.
In an effort to determine the identity of the bones, police have released three photos, which are viewable on the right, showing items discovered around the bones. The photos show a T-shirt, a flashlight and backpack all found on the golf course near the bones.
The bones first surfaced at the Swartz Creek Golf Course on Dec 13. They were sent for testing shortly after the discovery. Authorities said the bones were found, along with the backpack, near the golf course's fifth hole.
Authorities believe the bones are those of a 50-year-old white man and that they've been at the location for nearly two years.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Det. Sgt. Greg Hosmer, with the Flint Police Dept., at 810-237-6945.
