Skeletal Remains Found In Edgecombe County

A coin and bottle collector made a gruesome discovery today in a rural part of Edgecombe County.

Deputies say the person disovered a dead body behind an abandoned residence on Seven Bridges Road.

The victim has not been identified, nor has the cause of death.

A team of pathologists from Pitt County Memorial Hospital were on the scene Friday collecting the skeletal remains. The bones will be taken to PCMH so pathologists can determine the age, race and sex of the person.
