Human Remains Found in Troy

Troy Police were busy Wednesday afternoon, after finding a body about 20-miles outside Troy in Pocoshun. The finding raises questions about a woman who went missing more than a year ago.

Sergeant Benny Scarbrough says a call was received around 12:15 Wednesday afternoon from an individual who was putting up a hunting post and discovered human remains.

The body was found about 20 miles outside of Troy in almost the same location where 62-year-old Burnese Rudolph’s car was found, when she went missing a year and a half ago.

Scarbrough says Rudolph’s wallet and personal belongings were found on the site earlier on Wednesday.

News 4 received information from one of Rudolph’s relatives about the discovery; however, Scarbrough says police are waiting for a positive identification of the remains.

Sergeant Scarbrough said, “Currently, we're investigating human remains reported to the police department today around 12:15. [The] investigation is still ongoing and we'll be able to release further information as soon as we have that information to release.”

Scarbrough says though the evidence found on Wednesday points to remains being Rudolph’s, there are still further investigations that need to determine that.

A forensics team and coroner have been sent to the scene for further investigation.
