Late Sunday afternoon, police were called to a wooded area along CR 175 East, Warsaw, where severely decomposed human remains were allegedly found.
The woods where Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department deputies have been stationed all night, is just several yards north of Suburban Acres Mobile Home Park. The area is less than a mile from where Aurora Shoemaker, then 18, disappeared over a year ago.
Kosciusko County Coroner Michael Wilson would not comment on any findings, referring our questions to Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Chad Hill, who serves as the public information officer.
Sgt. Hill released the following statement this morning: “The Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department and the Kosciusko County Coroner’s Office are currently investigating the discovery of potential human skeletal remains located Sunday evening in a wooded area along CR 175 East, near the Suburban Acres Mobile Home Park north of Warsaw. No further information is available at this time.”
Shoemaker went for a walk outside her Suburban Acres home at approximately 5 p.m. the evening of Aug. 16, 2012. She has not been seen since.
A family member of Shoemaker’s told StaceyPageOnline.com they were contacted by police Sunday to confirm the findings of a human skeleton in the woods at about 6:30 p.m. Sunday.
