Synopsis: On 09-25-2013 at 0929 hours a Mendocino County Sheriff's Deputy was dispatched to Standish-Hickey State Park in Leggett, California due to the presence of human skeletal remains.

Upon arrival the Deputy confirmed the presence of the remains in a creek bed in the southern portion of the park near Highway 101. The remains had been located by CAL FIRE personnel who had been conducting training exercises in the park.

A California State Parks representative requested the Sheriff's Office assume investigative control over the incident.

At this time Sheriff's Detectives are being assisted by Mendocino County District Attorney investigators and California Department of Justice criminalists.
