Authorities are investigating the discovery of what appear to be human remains found Tuesday near the bluffs in Godfrey.  Someone who was walking near the Olin Nature Preserve and Great River Road notified the Madison County Sheriff’s Department of the finding, but no foul play is suspected.

Police believe the bones have likely been there for some time and could possibly be Native American.  Authorities are coordinating with the Illinois State Police and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources to help with identification.
