GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — Deputies chasing after someone Tuesday who ran away from a traffic stop found human remains in a vacant lot in South Carolina, investigators said.

Officers using police dogs found the bones and called the Greenville County Coroner’s Office, deputies said.

Deputy coroners confirmed the remains were from a human and are now trying to identify the person, determine when they died and the cause of death, the Coroner’s Office said in a statement.

The deputies arrested the suspect and investigators don’t think the traffic stop and the remains are related.
