Pettis County

Sheriff’s Detectives  continued the investigation on Wednesday (May 7) into human remains found in two locations at the Goodwill Chapel Trailer Park south of Sedalia, conducting follow-up interviews and processing evidence.

An autopsy was conducted on the remains earlier today by the Boone County Medical Examiners Office, and a forensic anthropologist was called in to complete further analysis.

Sheriff Kevin Bond reports that initial findings from the autopsy have confirmed the remains to be from a single body and that the victim is a white female.

Deputies were called to Lot 19 in the trailer park Sunday afternoon after workers discovered human remains outside the residence.  While investigating the case later in the afternoon, a deputy canvassing the area located additional remains in a wooded area a short distance from the residence. As indicated above, both remains are from a single victim.

If you have any  information regarding this case, you are urged to call the Pettis County Crime Stoppers TIPS Hotline at 660-827-TIPS, or the Pettis County Sheriff’s Office at 660-827-0052.
