Hunters out in the wooded area across from Wesley Chapel Storage got more than they bargained for this morning.
According to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office, the hunters found human remains across the street from the 26504 Wesley Chapel Blvd. business. They called the sheriff’s office around 10 a.m. today, Nov. 15 to report the discovery.
“The remains have apparently been scattered by animals and it is unknown how long they have been there,” sheriff’s office spokesman Kevin Doll wrote in a media release. “It is unknown if the remains are male or female as no clothes have been found at this time.”
Doll said there is a homeless camp in the area, but it unclear if the remains are that of a homeless person. It is also unclear if foul play was involved and likely won’t be known until a cause of death is determined.
