Investigators say that the remains are Evelyn Shelton. She has been missing since May 2011.
They have not determined a cause of death.
Investigators say a passerby stumbled on the skull and skeletal remains near Enola Station Road and called authorities. Sheriff’s deputies and cadaver dogs came to the scene Tuesday and conducted a full search of the area.
Spartanburg County Coroner Rusty Clevenger said it’s too early to determine the gender and sex of the deceased, but remained confident the case could be quickly solved.
“The fact that we have a skull helps a great deal and other skeletal remains because they all can be compared together,” said Clevenger.
Investigators are going through old case files and missing persons reports to see if there’s a possible connection to this case.
