Police work to identify remains found in park

We're getting a look at a backpack found alongside human remains in a state park. A local Boy Scout troop discovered the remains, a backpack and a shirt while camping at Cumberland Mountain State Park over the weekend.

Crossville police have showed pictures of the backpack at homeless shelters in the area, hoping someone would recognize it. So far, they've had no luck identifying the backpack or the remains.

Police say the remains have been sent to TBI. Thursday, an anthropologist will help officers with the investigation.
