From staff reports 

Some hunters on St. Helena Island made an unexpected find last week – human remains. 

At approximately 2:30 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 5, partial skeletal remains were discovered in a wooded area off Dulamo Road. 

Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office deputies and personnel from the Beaufort County Coroner’s Office responded to investigate; the skeletal remains were confirmed to be human. 

A forensic anthropologist will examine the skeletal remains for determinations of gender, age, cause of death, estimated date of death and identifying characteristics of the deceased person. 

Following that examination, it may be necessary to conduct additional analyses to establish the deceased person’s identity. 

The Coroner’s Office will release additional information when it becomes available.
