Four Human Skeletons Discovered In Remote Desert Graves
It took three days of excavation and investigation, but authorities are saying that they have discovered the skeletons of four humans buried in the middle of the desert.
The grave sites were discovered just outside of Victorville by an off-roading motorcyclist on Monday. Authorities with the San Bernardino Sheriff's Department have been excavating the bodies from two separate graves since then.
Authorities released the body count late last night, but they still don't know much about what—or who—they found, according to the San Bernardino Sun. A forensic anthropologist will conduct an autopsy to figure out the basic information: how long the skeletons had been there as well as their age, gender and how they died.
A third possible grave site was excavated, but investigators didn't find anything there, the Los Angeles Times reported.
