Police find human remains during Ashtabula County drug bust

ROAMING SHORES, Ohio (AP) – Police participating in an Ashtabula County raid found more than just drugs on the property.

The Star-Beacon reports (http://bit.ly/1MBFD4I ) the Ashtabula County coroner confirmed that bones found by officers Thursday at a Roaming Shores drug bust are human.

Sheriff William Johnson says the discovery might be linked to a missing Warren teen, but it’s too early to tell.

County sheriffs raided a home on U.S. Route 6 Thursday morning on suspicion of drug activity. They arrested one man, who hasn’t been identified.

Acting on a tip from other law enforcement personnel, investigators located the human remains in a fire pit outside the home.

Officials say DNA will be collected from the missing 18-year-old woman’s mother to confirm if the remains are hers. The results won’t be returned for weeks.
