CPD investigating possible unknown remains off Dan Cherry Drive

According to Calhoun Police Captain Tony Pyle, on Friday morning, Oct. 13, 2017, around 9:30 a.m., Calhoun Police received a tip for a resident stating she had observed two men dumping what appeared to be human remains in a creed behind Bristol Place Apartments, located off Dan Cherry Drive in Calhoun.

Detectives with CPD processed the area, discovering physical evidence that appears that some sort of remains had in fact been dumped into a creek on the property and around the surrounding embankment.

Alpha K-9 Unit, based in Atlanta, was requested to the scene to aid CPD in the search. The area was searched a second time using a cadaver dog. The K-9 failed to alert in the area and no other evidence was uncovered.

"It appears something was dumped in the area, however, at this time, all evidence indicates it most likely was not human remains," said Cpt. Pyle. "The evidence we've collected will be processed, which should give us a better indication of just what was left in the area."
