Human remains were found inside a duffel bag in a field Thursday morning behind a grocery store in Bethany.
“The first officer on scene unzipped the duffel bag just slightly, and it was obvious right away that it was human remains,” Bethany Police Chief Phil Cole said. “We haven’t disturbed the crime scene at all. We did not make any further inquiry into the duffel bag. We cannot tell whether the deceased is male or female. We have no idea the age of the victim.”
Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation agents are helping with crime scene analysis, spokeswoman Jessica Brown said. Check back with NewsOK.com for more on this story.
