ST. CLAIR TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A sheriff says body parts found in garbage bags along the road in a Michigan are believed to be the remains of one person.

St. Clair County Sheriff Tim Donnellon said in a statement Friday the remains found Thursday afternoon in garbage bags are believed to be from a white male. The bags were in St. Clair and China townships, about 50 miles northeast of Detroit.

Shortly before 5 a.m. Friday, Donnellon says investigators found a bag that contained clothing and charred paperwork. They’re trying to figure out whether that bag is linked to the remains.

Donnellon says authorities are seeking a middle-age white woman driving a late 1990s gray or tan sport utility vehicle. She was seen dumping what a caller thought was garbage from the vehicle.
