Bones Found in A Wooden Area in Bon Wier:
On July 15, 2023, at approximately 1200 hours, NCSO Dispatch Center received a call that a human backbone was found in a wooded area on a bluff near the Sabine River off CR 4085 in Bon Wier.
We made contact with the caller who directed us to the location were the remains were found. We conducted a search of the area. We collected items for further investigation to ascertain what occurred at the location that resulted in the human remains being in that area.
At this point, we cannot say by no means that the found skull and these remains are from the same body. We will not speculate and since we don’t have the facts yet, and we must rely on what the experts find once they examine the skull found earlier this week on the sandbar, and the human remains we found today.
Once this examination is complete, we will be able to ascertain some of the facts surrounding this case. Once we are provided a comprehensive report from the Forensic Lab pertaining to the human remains an update will be provided.
If you feel you have information pertaining to this case, please contact the Newton County Sheriff’s Office (409)379-3636.
