A local logger was out in a remote area of Crook County when he stumbled on what he thought was the skull of a cougar. Brian Gillen has since found out that the skull and bones he found was actually that of a Native American. The twist is; that the remains are very old. Our news partner, News Channel 21 reports that Gillen told them the location felt eerie when he first got there and now he knows why. The Crook County Medical Examiner, Kenneth Long, and the Oregon State Police Crime Lab determine the bones and skull Gillen found belong to a member of the Warm Springs Tribe, and could date back as far as the 1800’s. The Warm Springs Tribe will now decide what to do with the remains. A tribal spokesperson says they do not discuss Native American remains or burials.
