On 25 May 10 Sgt. Hornbeck issued a citation to Timothy S. Wines, age 39, 1195 East Branch Road, Lowell, for driving under an OVI suspended license, for not having proof of insurance, for having fictitious plates and for not wearing a seat belt. Sgt.

On 25 May 10 Bernice Wires, age 49, 1645 Calder Ridge Road, Belpre, reported she was involved in two heated arguments with her intoxicated husband. Questioned about the incident, neither Mrs. Wires nor her husband stated any threat or domestic violence occurred. Mrs. Wires commented that she phoned for help to avoid escalating the situation any further. Arranging separate quarters for the parties, Sgt. Thorpe closed this case as unfounded.

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.
