Passers-by discovered what appeared to be human remains Wednesday evening in a wooded area of Hopewell, Beaver County, officials said.

County Coroner Teri Tatalovich-Rossisaid she was called to the woods near Bocktown Road around 6 p.m. after someone found what appeared to be partial human remains and clothing down a steep, wooded hillside.

“It appears human, but we have to do a thorough investigation,” she said.
