On March 17, 2012, at approximately 5:10 PM, the
Henry County Sheriff’s Office received a report of possible human
remains being found along Old Hwy 34, near the Henry-Jefferson County
line. Two children had been riding their bikes from Lockridge, Iowa
to Rome, Iowa when they observed a white object lying in the ditch
between the roadway and the railroad tracks. Upon getting a closer
look at the object, the children observed a human skull and immediately
notified their parents.

The Henry County Sheriff’s Office, Division
of Criminal Investigation, Mt. Pleasant Police Department and the Henry
County Medical Examiner searched the area and discovered the skeletal
remains of a human body. The remains will be examined by the State
Medical Examiner’s Office and will also be submitted to the DCI’s
Criminalistic’s Laboratory for DNA analysis.


For questions, contact Special Agent Jeff Uhlmeyer at (319) 759-2541.
