HUMAN REMAINS DISCOVERED
IN NATIVE AMERICAN MOUND
During an excavation at a potential homebuilding
site in Devola, amateur archaeologist Wesley Clarke, age 57,
discovered what appeared to be teeth and a human skull in a
Native American burial mound on 15 May 10. In accordance with
policy, Mr. Clarke contacted the county coroner who advised
him to contact the Sheriff’s Office if he believed the
remains were human. Methodically, a portion of dirt, which contained
the skull and was approximately the size of a large shoe box,
was removed and sent to Ohio University for forensic analysis.
Examining the remains, the expert concluded the remains are
that of a child aged between seven and eleven and that the bone
fragments are at least 100 years old. Mr. Clarke stated he believes
the remains are between 2,000 and 2,800 years old. The remains
are currently in the custody of the Sheriff’s Office and
will either be returned to the property owner or be given to
a Native American group to be properly interred.
