Human Skeleton Found Near Clearwater Drive in Prescott Featured

By Officer Dave Fuller September 05, 2017 732

Skeletal Remains Found

On Sunday September 3rd, 2017 at approximately 4:11 PM Prescott Police Officers responded to an undeveloped area near 3400 Clearwater Drive in reference to citizen report of found possible skeletal remains.

Officers arrived and located what appeared to be a partially unearthed skull, potentially due to weather related ground erosion.  Prescott Police Department Investigators and Crime Scene Technicians were called and responded to the scene and over the next 2 days, slowly and carefully excavated a full set of human remains.  Initial evidence suggests that these remains are very old.

The Yavapai County Medical Examiner’s office later took custody of the remains and will conduct an autopsy.  The remains will then be examined by a Forensic Anthropologist.

At this time, the Prescott Police Department is unaware of any local unsolved homicides or missing person cases that would match this set of circumstances.  

Members of the Prescott Police Department Investigations Section will continue their investigation and ask that anyone with information regarding this case please contact Detective Mike Kinsey at 928-777-1924.
