“Upon doing so, he realized that the body was real, and yelled for (the father), who was also working on the roof,” the report said. “(The father) yelled back and told him to quit messing around and get back to work.”
The son continued to yell for his father, and urged him to come and look at the body, the report said.
“Upon (the son)’s urgent yelling, he (the father) rushed down to check himself. Upon doing so, he also agreed with his son’s first statement and had him call 911,” the report said.
When officers arrived on scene they witnessed, “what appeared to be skeletal remains, to the rear of the business in the woods,” the report said.
“The head appeared to be the east, with the feet facing to the west,” the report said.
Both the Crime Scene Unit and the Clark County Coroner’s office were dispatched to the scene, the report said.
“The identity of the remains is unknown,” the report said. “The death is pending an investigation.”

According to a sergeant at the scene on Monday, police nor the coroner’s investigator are sure whether the bones are that of a male or female.
The sergeant also said Monday they were unsure how long the remains had been there.
The Springfield News-Sun has reached out to the Springfield Police Division and the Clark County Coroner’s Office for additional information on the remains but did not receive a response.
