(STURGIS) – More information has been released on the skeletal remains found south of Sturgis.
During a Wednesday afternoon press conference, Sturgis Director of Public Safety Geoffrey Smith shared that additional remains were found on South Nottawa on the south side of the Burr Oak Tool building Wednesday morning. They were found in the same location where the initial discovery was made Tuesday.
Smith says he was told by St. Joseph County Veterans Affairs Coordinator Stoney Summey that it's possible the remains may be of an original settler of Sturgis. Summey says how he came to find out about this individual, named David Randall. LINKC.
Summey says they have searched the property for several years to determine where he was buried to get a grave stone for him, but have been unsuccessful in finding him. Summey says when they heard about the discovery of the remains, he reached out to Davis. LINKD.
Caroline Isaac, a forensic anthropologist with the Kalamazoo County Medical Examiner's Office says so far they have found remains of three adults and two children. They will do Carbon 14 testing to determine an exact age of the remains and if they are male or female. She says it could take several weeks to get the test results.
