The Lee County Sheriff's Office began a death investigation after human remains were located in Alva, Saturday morning.

The remains were found at around 10:30 a.m. by a teenage boy who spoke with Four In Your Corner. His mother asked that he remain anonymous. When he spoke with Four in Your Corner he said that when he first found the body, he first thought it was an animal.
