The area is so remote that rescue crews used rafts to get across the South Platte River and then hike into the woods to reach the scene.

Hunters found what looked like human bones and called authorities. The sheriff’s office says they could have been there for months.

The remains are headed to a coroner or a lab in Texas for examination.

A Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department spokesperson said they are calling the person’s death a homicide. It could take months to find out who the person is and the cause of death.
