ROSEVILLE, CA - Human remains were found near the Morgan Creek Golf Course by a passerby Thursday evening.
The skeletal remains were found around 5 p.m. in a creek bed near a bridge, Placer County sheriff's spokeswoman Dena Erwin said.
Detectives processed the scene and took the body to the Placer County morgue for further investigation. An autopsy will be performed to determine cause of death and the person's identity.
Erwin said it was unclear if the remains are male or female.
The autopsy conducted on Friday showed no signs of foul play, according to the county coroner. The body had characteristics similar to that of a man, but could not be positively confirmed as male. Investigators hope DNA testing will provide more information.
