Items found near human remains could provide big clues

Cumberland County, Tenn. Police say certain items found in the woods could lead to the identity of human remains found over the weekend.

A Harmonica, backpack, and batteries could lead to clues as to who the camper was. The skeletal remains were found by a Boy Scout group early Saturday evening.

Major Mark Rosser of the Crossville Police Department says that the body and camp were discovered under a bluff that was 60-yards away from the walking trails in Cumberland Mountain State Park. No foul play is suspected.
