NEW: Officials determine human remains found in Lewisville field are from an adult
Original story: Possible human remains found in field near Lewisville business
The Lewisville Police Department has released updated information regarding the remains found in a field off Business 121 near Advantage Storage in Lewisville.
Officials from the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office and a team of anthropologists have determined the skull and bone remains are from an adult in his or her 40’s. The sex of the individual has not yet been determined.
They also determined the remains have been in the field for at least three years, potentially longer.
It will take around two months for the Medical Examiner to complete all necessary forensic tests to determine the sex of the individual and a possible cause of death.
Members from the Lewisville Police Department along with the anthropologists walked the entire field today and believe they have located all the bones.
Although Lewisville PD does not currently have any unsolved missing person(s) cases matching this timeframe, they are working closely with surrounding agencies that do.
The scene was cleared earlier this afternoon, but the investigation will remain active.
