Digging turns up remains of six people near Pinedale 5-15-07

PINEDALE, Wyo. (AP) - The Sublette County Sheriff's Department has asked a local anthropologist to examine the remains of six people found outside Pinedale. Authorities say the remains appear to be those of American Indians and could be many centuries old.

Sheriff's detective Sgt. K.C. Lehr said a local resident was putting in a septic system west of Pinedale on Thursday and called law enforcement after coming across what appeared to be human remains.

Investigators from the sheriff's department and the federal Bureau of Land Management found what appeared to be the remains of six people - both adults and children.

“We did find a couple of skulls, some intact long bones,” Lehr said.

Lehr said preliminary indications were that the bones were American Indian and were more than 1,500 years old. He said the landowner had contacted a representative from the Eastern Shoshone Tribe; meanwhile, investigators tuned over the bones to a physical anthropologist who lives in Daniel to make more precise determinations about their origins.
