Heavy Rain Leads Authorities In Small Oklahoma City To 1,000-Year-Old Discovery
Heavy rain in Lawton, Oklahoma, led authorities to a discovery of human remains thought to be approximately 1,000 years old, according to a local report.
The Lawton Constitution reported Saturday that the Comanche County Sheriff’s Department was called to a piece of private land where a skeleton had been found exposed after heavy rain.
Officers, who were not immediately sure if the remains were crime-related, examined the skeleton and summoned help from archeologists at the University of Oklahoma.
The two experts, Kent Buehler and Robert Brooks, determined that the remains had likely belonged to a 40-year-old man who died about 1,000 years ago. The individual was thought to have been Native American. More
