3-25-06 – Authorities are investigating the discovery of human remains in Pushmataha County. Sheriff Jim Duncan says a logger discovered human bones in a remote area, about four miles southwest of Clayton, Oklahoma on Wednesday.
The sheriff’s office and the OSBI opened an investigation and discovered teeth and part of a skull late in the week.
Authorities in Push County currently have two open missing persons cases, including that of Jeffrey Ben who disappeared more than five years ago.
Saturday, investigators went back to the discovery site with dogs, looking for more remains. None were found.
Monday, the bones will be sent to the state medical examiner’s office for identification.
