Yet-to-be-identified human remains were recently found on the Riverview School District High School campus in Searcy.
A social media post by the school district said a student found the adult remains in the woods behind the school’s administration building and notified police.
The post said the city of Searcy and White County law enforcement agencies responded to the scene, and have now begun the process of identification.
The Associated Press reports Searcy police say the remains belong to an adult and appear to have been in the woods for “years.” The AP notes the remains will be sent to the Arkansas State Crime Lab for identification and to determine the cause of the death.
