Human remains found near W. 33rd St.

Posted By on Mon, Mar 31, 2014 at 9:09 AM

Little Rock Police Department reports that human remains were found on Sunday evening just west of the 3400 block of W. 33rd Street. Officers were called to the scene just off University Ave. around 6 p.m. last night by a witness who stumbled across the skeleton. The remains will be sent to the Arkansas State Crime Lab to attempt identification. 

UPDATE: Just received the police report, and it's grisly stuff. Apparently, when police arrived at the scene, they made contact with the person who discovered the remains, who showed them a black trash bag with a skull and other bones inside. "[The witness] advised his dogs came out from the woods after a walk and he observed them chewing on the bones," the report states. "[The witness] advised he gathered the bones to prevent his dogs from running off with them." 

Crime scene and detectives responded to the scene and later found other bones nearby. The search for more bones and other body parts is ongoing, with Lt. Sidney Allen with the LRPD saying it may take weeks to get a positive I.D. on the deceased.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
