Sgt. Ken Swithenbank of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that human remains had been found near a transient camp north of Redway today. Humboldt County Coroner’s personnel were called to the scene this morning and the remains were removed to be examined.
Though Swithenbank said that the remains were “not recent.” They had been there “a significant length of time,” he explained.
It is not clear whether the individual fell from the hill near Ravencliff or if something else occurred. “The circumstances surrounding [the] death are under investigation at this time,” said Swithenbank.
