False alarm: Remains not those of a human

LOUISBURG -- Authorities said Thursday afternoon that remains found behind a Louisburg home were not those of a human.

Louisburg police officers responded to a home in the 700 block of N. Main Street the afternoon of Dec. 6 after a homeowner said they were planting a tree and came across what they believed to be human remains underground.

Police called upon the sheriff's office's forensics unit, as well as the State Bureau of Investigation, the State Office of Archeology and the State Medical Examiner's Office to assist.

A preliminary investigation led authorities to suspect the remains were, indeed, human.

By Thursday afternoon, though, Louisburg Police Chief Jason Abbott said further investigation confirmed that the remains were not human -- suspecting the bones may be that of a cow.

"They were in such a state of decay that it was difficult to determine without further examination," Abbott said.
