Human bones found off interstate in Utah

Law enforcement officials in Utah are examining the skeletal remains of an unidentified person found last month near Cisco, Utah.

The investigators also examined bits of clothing found with the bones, the Grand County, Utah, Sheriff’s Department said.

Grand County officials have sought Lance Leeroy Arellano in connection with the wounding of a Utah State Parks ranger in November. Grand County Sheriff Steven White said the remains do not appear to be Arellano’s, noting their condition suggested the bones had been there since before Arellano’s disappearance.

It also wasn’t immediately known whether the bones were of a man or woman, White said.

A man who stopped to walk his dog while driving along Interstate 70 on April 16 found a bone, the Grand County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement. The man took the bone to Montrose and turned it over to officials there. Montrose officials then contacted their counterparts in Utah.

Utah authorities used a team of dogs, and handlers found more remains in the vicinity of the original find.

The remains are under study by the Utah State Medical Examiners Office.
