FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. (WESH) — Police in Bunnell are conducting a death investigation after discovering human remains at a homeless camp Saturday morning.
An officer discovered the remains in some woods off N. Palmetto Street and East Howe Street.
He noticed a homemade structure covered by a blue tarp and a human skeleton on the ground between a chair and a fire pit.
Police found a wallet at the site and believe the remains are that of a known transient who hadn’t been seen since February.
The medical examiner will determine the cause of death, but police say nothing suspicious was found at the site.
