Police believe the skeletal remains could be that of David Milton Crawley, who disappeared on April 4, 2004. The identity of the remains has NOT been confirmed.
A citizen notified Jackson County Sheriff's around noon Tuesday after discovering what appears to be a human skull and human bones.
Sheriff's say the bones were found scattered in a wooded area near Davenport Lane in the Cypress community.
The remains were found by a hunter around 12:30 p.m. roughly three-quarters of a mile into the woods, and about one-and-a-half miles north of U.S. Highway 90, according to Major Donnie Branch of the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office.
The discovery has led to speculation that the remains may be those of David Milton “Bubba” Crawley III., who disappeared from his sister’s home off Honey Pot Lane on April 4, 2004.
Reports indicate the bones were found about a half-mile from Honey Pot Lane, Branch said.
At this time the victim's identity and manner or cause of death is yet to be determined. Preliminary investigation reveals that the remains have been in this location for an extended period of time.
