After remains found in Williamson County, authorities need help identifying man

Franklin, Tenn. (WTVF) – Human remains found in a wooded area in Williamson County last November have been processed. Investigators are close to discovering the identity of the person who died, but they are asking for the public’s help.

The remains were found on November 26 in woods near Clovercroft Road in Franklin by a hunter who first discovered the skull, before there were more bones nearby.

Investigators with the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office and the state Chief Medical Examiner’s Office as well as members of the Williamson County Emergency Management Agency, Williamson County Fire and Rescue, Brentwood Fire Department, Williamson County Geographic Information Systems Division of the IT Department, and Central Tennessee State University forensic anthropologists all assisted with the location of “many other human bones,” the sheriff’s office says.

Investigators believe the remains belong to a white or Hispanic male between the ages of 35 and 50 and that the remains had been on the property for at least a year before they were discovered.

The sheriff’s office is asking for the public’s help in identifying the person whose remains were found based on their guess.

If you or someone you know has information about this case that may assist with the investigation, please call Williamson County Crime Stoppers at 615-794-4000 or Detective Darren Barnes at 615-790-5554 ext. Do it. 3231.
