According to Cambria County coroner Jeff Lees, a body was found Monday in a wooded area in Richland Township.
Authorities say Richland police and the Cambria County District Attorney’s office were called in to investigate the discovery made along Oakridge Drive just before noon.
A forensic anthropology team has also been called in to assist with the investigation.
Lees says the body was found approximately 100-150 yards into the wooded area.
Authorities are not speculating about the identity of the victim and note that the death does not appear suspicious at this time.
“The human remains were found shortly before noon today in a wooded area off of Oak Ridge Drive across from the Galleria Mall.”
Lees notes that an autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.
