Investigators Confirm Human Remains Found in Septic Tank

The Storey County Sheriff's Office has confirmed that what appeared to be a body found in a septic tank north of Virginia city, is in fact human remains. Deputies say they are now investigating the matter as a homicide.

The Sheriff says that the current residents of the home where the remains were found do not appear to be involved in the case, as the remains are older than they have lived in the home. Initial reports suggest that the remains may have been in the tank for over 25 years.  

Investigators say that they will release more information on this case as it becomes available.
