Sauget, IL (KSDK) -- Police continue to investigate a scene near the American Bottoms plant in Sauget, Illinois where bones were found Tuesday afternoon.
Sauget police said a skull and bones were taken to a pathologist for analysis while crime scene investigators continued to dig Wednesday.
Chief Pat Delaney said there is trauma to the skull, but they don't know yet it if it is the result of a gunshot wound or other means of force.
The chief hopes to know in the next few days how long the bones have been there.
Sweat pants covered in moss was also found near the scene with Russian ruble coins inside the pockets. It is not known if the pants are related to the bones found.
