NEOSHO RAPIDS, Kan. — The sheriff in east-central Kansas’ Lyon County says that while it may take months to identify a human skull and other remains found last month near Neosho Rapids, he believes the remains are those of an older adult man.

Sheriff Jeff Cope tells KVOE (http://bit.ly/2qh5fOH ) that identifying the remains found April 29 and what caused that person’s death has been a slow effort.

Cope says his department continues investigating the matter with the county’s coroner.

The specific location of where the remains were found has not been disclosed.
