Human remains found in Washington County

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The Washington County Sheriff's office says human remains were found in the Gales Creek area on Wednesday.

The sheriff's office says the remains were found by a Clean Water Services contractor who was spraying weeds along the Gales Greek. The contractor took the deputies to a secluded area where the decomposed remains were located.

The sheriff's office says there weren't immediate signs of violence. The remains appear to be from an adult.

The medical examiner's office scheduled an autopsy for Thursday.
