A Rockwall County man found human bones in woods about five miles north of Rockwall. He had been searching some nearby woods with a metal-detector when he discovered a firearm and, nearby, human bones.The Rockwall County Sheriff says the bones have been out there so long that there are no recent missing persons cases that match-up, but they will be going back over old files and talking to long time residents to see if anyone can remember anything pertinent. Deputies will be back out in the densely wooded stretch today. They searched for clues last night but gave up when it got too dark.
