Posted on 29th November 2011 at 09:00

Authorities in Clatsop County are now working to identify human remains discovered over the weekend by an elk hunter. This past Friday, a man who’d been hunting in the Nicolai Mountain area reported finding a human skull as he crossed a logjam over a small stream. The Clatsop County Sheriff’s Office moved into the area on Saturday, recovering the skull, some additional bones, and some clothing. The clothing is described as blue cargo-style pants and a black XXL Adidas shirt. The remains have been turned over to the Oregon State Medical Examiner for forensic examination; it’s reported that they think that the remains have been out in the woods for a year or more. The Clatsop County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help on the case, looking for information possible missing persons.
