Human remains were found over the weekend in Scott County near Davenport. Sheriff’s deputies hope an autopsy can provide the identity of what are believed to be human remains they found on some uninhabited property in rural Scott County.
Deputies and the Iowa D.C.I. armed with a search warrant used search-and-rescue dogs to check some property owned by 51-year-old David Spriet, Jr. He hasn’t been seen since February 2009, and a missing persons report was filed on him in June of last year.
The remains were in a pile of debris. They’ve been collected and the Scott County Medical Examiner’s Office is scheduling the autopsy.
