Civil War-Era Skeletal Remains Found at Thayer

THAYER, MO (KAIT) - The skeletal remains of what may be a Civil War-era soldier have been unearthed along the banks of the Warm Fork River near Thayer.

Thayer Police Chief David Bailey told Region 8 News that the remains were found Monday, stating that the remains, along with what is believed to be a musket ball, were unearthed after erosion caused by flooding in the area approximately one month ago.

Bailey said The Missouri Dept. of Natural Resources has been contacted and will investigate the scene, and that local officials now believe there may be other graves in the area.
