A body was found over the weekend in southeast Iowa but it’s unclear yet if foul play is involved. Ottumwa police and state officials continue to work to identify the skeletal remains found Saturday morning in a wooded area on the city’s east side.
The remains were reportedly found by a teenager who was looking for mushrooms. The remains were sent to the state medical examiner where an initial autopsy has been performed. Ottumwa police released a statement Sunday saying the remains had been in the wooded area for some time.
