Human remains found in Michigan quarry
Police have have human remains at the bottom of a quarry in southeastern Michigan. It appears they could be those of a 27-year-old female who has been missing since March.
Michigan State Police Lt. Tony Cuevas says evidence suggests the remains belong to Jamie Rachelle West, but positive identification could take some time.
“There are indications it’s going to be her,” Lt. Cuevas said.
The remains were found around 35 feet from the top of the quarry’s edge in an area where there is no water.
Too often we see deaths occur at quarries, especially in the summer when teens and young adults try to cool off in the water. Some people refuse to obey warnings, thinking nothing bad will ever happen to them.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
