While searching for turtle shells along railroad tracks in Charles County yesterday morning, Scott Whaley made a gruesome find.
The trucker from Palestine, Ohio, found the remains of a human skull.
"It's been there a while," Whaley said.
The Charles County Sheriff's Department searched the area near Acton Lane and Route 925 near Waldorf yesterday, looking for more information, said Craig Renner, a department spokesman. Investigators found partial skeletal remains and a dark T-shirt with "AW 1" written on it.
