Possible Human Remains Found In Franklin County

Rocky Mount, VA - The Franklin County's Sheriff's Department is investigating what they think may be human remains found in a burned out car.

The car was found Monday afternoon in a rural area near the 2000 block of Philpott Road.

That's close to the Henry County Line.

A department spokesman says the car, which was badly burned, was found by a man looking to buy land in the area.

Investigators would like to hear from you if you smelled or saw smoke or fire in the area within the past two weeks.

The possible remains have been sent to the medical examiner's office for identification.
