Suitcase with bones found near Interstate 75

BUTTS COUNTY, GA. - - A suitcase containing what appeared to be human bones was found on a central Georgia interstate on Thursday.

The GBI says someone searching for a lost item found the suitcase a few miles away from exit 201 on I-75.

They added that they think the suitcase had been there for some time.

GBI Special Agent Joe Wooten says the nature of the scene is indicative that the suitcase had been there for some time. 

Butts County Sheriff Gary Long told our Atlanta station that the bones appeared to include a human skull. 

The possible remains will be turned over to the GBI which will test the bones and confirm that they are human.
