The Vernon Parish Sheriff’s Office reported this morning that they believed possible human remains had been found about 1 am in Pitkin.

Photographs were sent to the LSU Faces Lab and reviewed by their personnel. It was determined that while it is difficult to tell the difference between a skeletal paw of a bear and a human hand, this was indeed a bear paw.

While searching VPSO did manage to locate 3 of the "hands" at the site.
