PICTURES: Recognize this jewelry? Barry County investigators hope it helps identify remains
The Barry County Sheriff's Office is asking for your help in identifying skeletal remains.
According to Detective Doug Henry with the Barry County Sheriff's Office, the remains were found on March 26. However, the sheriff's office decided to ask for the public's help in identifying them for the first time on Tuesday, May 1.
Henry says a landowner found the skeletal remains on his property in a remote area. The location is near Jenkins around Farm Road 2120.
The sheriff's office sent the remains to the University of North Texas for DNA testing, however the tests have not found anything positive at this time.
Detectives have also contacted family members of people on their missing persons list, but no one has been able to identify the remains. Because nearly two weeks have passed since the remains were found, the sheriff's office has decided to ask the public for help.
The skeletal remains had some jewelry with them and the sheriff's office has released photos of the items in hopes that someone will be able to help identify the victim. The rubber watchband pictured in the photos is a NEFF brand band.
If you have any information in this case, please call the Barry County Sheriff's Office at 417-847-6556.
