Effingham Deputies Trying to Identify Cremated Remains

EFFINGHAM COUNTY -

The Effingham County Sheriff's Office is seeking the public's assistance in identifying human cremated remains.

  Deputies say they were called to 167 Community Road after a resident discovered two boxes of cremated remains.

  The Effingham County Sheriff's Office has been attempting to identify and locate the family members of the deceased. It is believed that one box contains the remains of an adult and the other is either a child or small adult.

  Investigators have been working with Effingham County Coroner David Exley, local funeral homes, and have also been looking through property records.

  Deputies say the residence is a rental property.  One box has a date which is partially labeled sometime in October of the 2000's.

   Anyone with information on these remains is asked to contact the Effingham County Sheriff's Office at 912-754-3449.
