Skeletal remains found in Covington
Placeholder Image

Skeletal remains of an unidentified man were found Thursday evening off Odum Street in North Covington.

An adult who lived nearby was riding a four-wheeler in a wooded area when he discovered the skeletal remains, said Covington Police Capt. Ken Malcom.

Investigators do not believe there was any foul play, Malcom said, and the remains were sent to the state crime lab to be processed.

The area where the body was found is part of a planned subdivision that never had any houses built in it, only roads.

When asked how long it typically takes law enforcement to identify skeletal remains, Malcom said identification depends on several factors, including whether a missing persons report was ever filed for the person.
