Human remains found in Rutherford County earlier this week have been sent to the state medical examiner's office to determine the person's identity.

The discovery was first made Sunday off of Big Springs Road in Christiana, located just outside of Murfreesboro. Detectives recovered additional remains at the same location Monday.

“We are waiting for identification and if possible, the cause of death,” Sheriff Robert Arnold said.

The remains are believed to have been in the area for several months before the discovery.

No additional information was released.
