FLINTSTONE, Maryland – The Maryland State Police confirmed Tuesday that human remains were discovered in Green Ridge State Forest over the weekend.
According to a press release issued by MSP, shortly before 5:15 p.m. on February 25, state troopers from the Cumberland Barracks received a call from an individual who was in the area of M.V. Smith Road in the Green Ridge State Forest and believed he discovered human remains.
According to the release, a description of the remains is not currently available and it is not known the duration the body may have been in the woods.
Maryland State Police Homicide Unit investigators and crime scene technicians, including investigators from C3I and assistance from Maryland National Resources Police, conducted scene processing and recovered what appeared to be human remains within a heavily wooded area.
The remains have been transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore for an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of death.
Investigators are hoping the autopsy will provide answers to a number of questions concerning the remains.
The investigation is ongoing.
