Remains were found on George Rd, just north of Noland Rd (KCMO) by a stranger while looking for firewood in a desolate area. The finder removed the remains off the roadway and placed them in a box and took them home. That is when he notified police. He removed the remains because he was afraid dogs would carry them off. No one was seen at or near the recovery site when remains were found.
