Human remains found on rural East Texas land

PALESTINE, TX

The Anderson County Sheriff's Office says the owners of the land near Palestine (PAL'-uhs-teen) discovered the remains late Sunday.

Chief Deputy Troy Black said Monday that Texas Rangers have been summoned to help with the investigation. Black says the remains are so decomposed that authorities could not immediately identify the person's race, sex or age.

Further details haven't been released.

Palestine is 105 miles southeast of Dallas.
