Jawbone Search



Authorities conducted another search of an island in the Mississippi River Sunday where a human jawbone was found last July.

Sheriff Dave Brand said they spent eight hours in the area across from the East End Boat Harbor but found no clues.

Brand said he does not expect test results on the bone from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension to come back until December.

He said another search using a side-scan sonar unit will be conducted this week...probably on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Brand said the investigation has now been turned over to Buffalo County because the jawbone was actually discovered on the Wisconsin side of the river.....
