Human remains found on KM Mountain

Human skeletal remains were discovered on KM Mountain on February 19.

Coroner Dan Bigelow collected and delivered the remains to Washington State Forensic Anthropologist Katherine Taylor in King County to be examined and hopefully identified.

“Taylor is a rock,” Bigelow said. “Thank goodness; with her help, there hasn’t been an unidentified set of remains that has been found in Wahkiakum County in the last 12-15 years that has not been identified.”

“This one is going to take a while,” Bigelow added.

Bigelow said there will be a further search of the area for clues to the person’s identity when weather conditions permit.
