Phoenix police announced Sunday that more human remains have been discovered on South Mountain.
The department had been conducting a search on Saturday after a hiker found a human skull on January 14th.
The search took place because investigators determined there to be signs of trauma to the skull, leading them to believe the person’s death was a homicide.
On Saturday during the search, police located the additional remains.
According to officers, the additional remains located during the search will be used as evidence as they continue the investigation and try to identify the victim.
This is an ongoing investigation.
