LATHROP, Mo. -- Police continue to investigate after human remains were found in a ditch near Holt, Mo.

As of Monday morning, a major portion of Southeast Cannonball Road is taped off and blocked off as the investigation continues.

When FOX 4's Kathy Quinn first arrived on the scene, a deputy said investigators would return at daylight.

Police have not yet said if the remains are of a man or a woman.

"That's all going to be determined later by the forensics examiners," Sheriff Larry Fish said.
