More human remains found on South Mountain after skull discovery

Investigators have discovered more human remains on South Mountain more than a week after a skull was found on the preserve.

Police were called to an area near the Holbert Trailhead on Jan. 14 after a hiker discovered a skull that "showed what appeared to be trauma."

The Maricopa County Medical Examiner's Office and Phoenix investigators are working to figure out the identity of the victim and any possible suspects.

On Jan. 28, police said the case was officially being considered a homicide. Parts of South Mountain were closed off for investigators to collect any remaining evidence.

More remains were found during the search on Saturday. It's not known if those remains and the skull belonged to the same person.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Phoenix PD or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
