Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Coffey on Tuesday reported that his agency was contacted at 4:30 pm on Sunday, after a suspicious bag was found on the shoreline of Douglas Lake near Lake Ridge Drive in Dandridge. Upon arrival, deputies made contact with the unidentified complainant who stated that while walking on his property he noticed a suspicious bag next to the lake shore. Upon further investigation, deputies observed that the bag contained human remains. Investigators from the Criminal Investigation Division, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, and the Attorney General’s Office are investigating.
