RICHMOND, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities in Shawano County continue to investigate the finding of human remains in a wooded area.

On Saturday, the sheriff's department was called around 5:30 p.m. to some woods in the Town of Richmond..

“As with any situation as this, the case is being handled as a possible homicide at this time,” Sheriff Randall Wright told FOX 11.

According to deputies, a group of young adults found the remains along County Highway MMM. That's west of Shawano. Authorities continue to scour the scene Saturday night and through Sunday.

A group of young adults found the remains. However, few details are being released at this time – leaving many unanswered questions.

Residents told FOX 11 that not a lot of people use the road where the remains were found.

“The remains, artifacts, and evidence have been sent for a forensic exam and autopsy to the Wisconsin Crime Lab,” Sheriff Wright said.

Authorities said they won't release any further information until results of the forensic examinations come back.
