What are believed to be human remains were found in the Cushing area of Nacogdoches County last Friday evening.
Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office and Texas Rangers are investigating the discovery after an individual looking for a pet animal came across what are said to be human bones.
A search by authorities Saturday in a heavily wooded area found other remains identified as human.
Sheriff Jason Bridges is saying foul play is suspected.
The remains were sent to a forensics crime lab in Huntsville.
Sheriff Bridges says it could take several months for DNA results to be processed.
He added they have a theory of who the victim is.
