Police are investigating after human remains were found on Tuesday.
A crew of workers clearing trees along a power line right-of-way found them late in the afternoon in a wooded area near the U.S. 29, South Main Street interchange, according to Danville police.
Now, investigators and crime scene technicians are executing a grid search, hoping to find evidence.
The remains will be sent to the medical examiner’s office to identify the individual and determine a cause of death.
