JEFFERSON COUNTY - A hiker discovered skeletal remains in difficult terrain on a hogback just west of Bowles Monday night.
According to Jefferson County deputies, they do not know the gender nor the cause of death at this time. They did say it appears the remains have been there for some time.
There are no roads or trails to the body, so investigators had to wait until daylight to hike to get to the scene.
The hogback is the first hill that lines C-470. Bowles is not near the hogback, but it is the nearest intersecting cross street.
