Human remains found in Dublin Mountains

http://www.rte.ie/news/2012/0109/remains.html


Quote:
A forensic examination will take place later on skeletal human remains found by hill walkers in the Dublin Mountains yesterday.
The discovery was made by two people out hill walking at around midday.
The skeletal remains were found in a shallow grave beside an uprooted tree in a forest near Military Road.
No clothes or any other recognisable items were found at the scene, but further searches will be carried out throughout the day.
Gardaí will not be sure of either the sex or the identity until DNA, bone structure, dental records and other tests have been carried out.
The State Pathologist and a forensic anthropologist are expected to begin their examinations later today.
The remains of victims of violence have previously been found in the Dublin Mountains.
A tense time for families with missing loved ones... I wonder could there finally be a breakthrough in the search for those women who mysteriously disappeared during the 90's?

Can only presume its one of 'the missing women'.
Hope they can eventually find out who the hell it was that took them all.

What the hell do hill Walkers be doing that they find skeletal remains in a shallow grave

I'd imagine a hill walker to be hill walking, not shallow grave digging!

I'm guessing that's some kinda of joke or dig at me?.

If it is a dig at me there are other places to do it and not here.

Well, it's not hard to find them really.

They'd be tripping over them daily in both the Dublin and Wicklow mountains.

According to RTE the grave was beside an uprooted tree... So it's possible a tree blew down during the recent storms and uncovered the remains.
