Report of Human Remains Found in Septic Tank in Storey County

Posted: Updated:

The Storey County Sheriff's Office is investigating the discovery of possible human remains.

Sheriff Gerald Antinoro says the remains had been pumped out of a septic tank at a home north of Virginia City on Tuesday afternoon.

The investigation is in its preliminary stages, and officials cannot confirm just yet if the remains are indeed human.

Sheriff Antinoro says the homeowner is not believed to have any involvement with the remains, which were likely there long before the current residents. Officials are also withholding the homeowner's name and the exact address to preserve the integrity of any potential investigation.
