Children find human remains outside Colorado City

Children found human bones in the desert east of Colorado City in northwest Arizona early Sunday, according to Mohave County Sheriff Tom Sheahan.

Sheahan said it was initially reported that the body was found facedown in a shallow grave and that the hands were secured behind the victim’s back.

Sheahan said identifying of the body will be a challenge because it appears the remains had been there for years.

Homicide detectives are investigating and no further details were available.
