Authorities in suburban Atlanta are working to identify skeletal remains found by a person searching for scrap metal.
Cobb County police Officer Mike Bowman said the remains were found near a subdivision northwest of Atlanta Wednesday night. He said that foul play is not suspected in the death.
Mike Gerhard, operations manager at the Cobb Medical Examiner's office, said the person appears to have been dead for quite some time.
