ANDERSON, Ind.– An investigation is underway after human remains were found in River Bend Park in Anderson.

Police say just before 11 a.m. Wednesday, a father and son were mushroom hunting and came across skeletal remains at the park. Police arrived and found an ID and some clothing near the remains.

The park is located near 201 Sycamore Street, north of West 8th Street and east of North Madison Avenue.

The Madison County coroner’s office said they believe they know who the remains belong to, but that identity has not been released. The remains have been taken to IUPUI for further testing.

They estimate the body has been there for six or seven months. Police say it’s too early to say if foul play is suspected.
