Skeletal remains uncovered off Newberry Road
Alachua County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating the circumstances surrounding skeletal remains uncovered last night. ASO Sergeant Todd Kelly says two homeless people were searching for a place to sleep about 40-50 feet away from the roadway near the 6000 block of West Newberry Road when they discovered the remains. He says there are a lot of questions open this investigation.
The Medical Examiner’s office is examining the remains as ASO processes the scene.
