(STURGIS) – More skeletal remains have been found south of Sturgis.

Director of Public Safety Geoffrey Smith says as of this morning, additional remains were found south of the Burr Oak Tool facility on South Nottawa Road. This is the same location where remains were found Tuesday morning.

The newly found remains have been collected for examination.

Smith says information conveyed to him by St. Joseph County Veterans Affairs Coordinator Stoney Summey, it's possible according to historical records the remains may be of original settlers to Sturgis.

Smith says there is ongoing research to try and determine if this is accurate, and if there happens to be any Civil War connections with a possible burial site.
