TOLEDO — A spokesman with the Ohio State Highway Patrol reports that additional human remains, believed to be connected to the David Carter case, were discovered Tuesday morning along Interstate 75 near Eagleville in Wood County.
On Oct. 1, partial human remains were found in a sleeping bag by an ODOT worker south of Findlay along I-75. Four days later the Lucas County coroner identified the remains as David D. Carter, 39, of Melvindale, Michigan. Other remains, also identified through DNA testing as Carter, were reportedly found near an apartment in Melvindale.
On Oct. 10 investigators were back along I-75 south of Findlay looking for potential evidence in the case. Traffic was blocked for a time while troopers and crime scene technicians processed the scene.
In a brief statement released that day, a patrol spokesman said, “While conducting an additional search between Findlay and Bluffton we have located potential evidence related to a missing person case.”
The case is being investigated as a homicide, but no one is in custody. A Detroit TV station reported last week that a person of interest that was originally arrested has been released.
Lt. Robert Sellers, public affairs commander for the highway patrol, said on Tuesday that the case remains under investigation.
