Human remains found in Pueblo County

Investigators with the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office are sifting through a scene Sunday after a hunter came across human remains Saturday afternoon.

At this time, the identity of the human remains is unknown. The cause and manner of death has not been determined. The Sheriff's Office says more information will be released as the investigation continues.
