Are the Remains Found in Colorado Actually Human?

Finding what you believe to be human remains must really make a person sick to their stomach, and with several parties analyzing the bones agreeing that they do appear human, the sinking stomach was apparently not in vain.

In fact, deputies at the Saguache County Sheriff's Office, the coroner, and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation have all said that they believe the bones to be of human origin.

Despite authorities reporting that the bones are most likely human, they have said that they do not believe that they belong to either Suzanne Morphew or Kristal Reisinger, two women that are currently listed as missing in Colorado.

The investigation is currently ongoing.
