COVINGTON COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

The Covington County Sheriff's Department is investigating the discovery of bones near Lake Mike Connor. 

A logging company notified authorities about several bones found near the site where human remains were discovered back in May. 

"We ruled out a majority of it as just animal bones, and we took them to the hospital to double check it," said Covington County Sheriff Stann Smith. "We will send it all off to the state crime lab to just have it checked out to be safe."
