March 04, 2013

Cochise County sheriff's deputies say skeletal remains have been discovered in the ruins of a rural home that was discovered burned to the ground. They say a man spotted his neighbor's burned out home as he was passing by Saturday afternoon and told deputies the fire could have broken out anytime between Wednesday and when it was discovered Saturday.

The Pima County Medical Examiner's Office will investigate the cause of death and try to identify the person who died.
