Forrest County authorities have confirmed that bones dug up this week by some dogs in the Glendale Community are human.
Investigators are now working to identify the deceased person.
Glendale resident Charles Bender called the Forrest County Sheriff's Department yesterday after friends alerted him to the remains in his front yard.
Forrest County Coroner Butch Benedict says the case is difficult because much of the evidence has been chewed away.
Investigtors say it will likely be Monday before a full team arrives to cordon off the woods and attempt to locate more evidence.
