Human Remains Found In Louisiana Cornfield
SICILY ISLAND, La. (AP) — Catahoula Parish authorities are investigating the discovery of human remains in a cornfield 5 miles north of Sicily Island.
Authorities tell The Natchez Democrat (http://bit.ly/1myMHOB) two suspects have been arrested in the case, including one woman who initially tipped off police to the grave site.
Sheriff James Kelly said the case began Thursday when 30-year-old Leah Marie Pontiff told Ouachita Parish deputies she could show them where a body might be buried that might be related to a missing person report filed days earlier.
Kelly says the remains were recovered Saturday. Authorities have not identified the victim.
Pontiff was booked with obstruction of justice.
Kelly says 36-year-old Daniel White was booked Saturday with second-degree kidnapping.
It was unclear whether those arrested have attorneys.
