A hunter in Louisa County stumbled upon an unexpected sight this weekend.
John Grady went hunting Saturday morning and found human remains. Near the bones, Grady found a pistol, some decomposed clothes and a Bible.
Grady called the Louisa County Sheriff's Office. Authorities there say the remains are most likely a man who died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
"I've seen a lot of stuff hunting over the years, but this is by far the worst," Grady said. "I know there's someone out there looking for whoever this was. I don't know what happened to the individual. Hopefully this will get things started."
Deputies say the body likely dates back to 2007 or 2008. They say the land was cut over and burned around that time, and there was evidence of burn marks on the items.
