Authorities investigating the disappearance of a Royalton man say they found “what are believed to be human remains” on Wednesday in a Norwich barn.
The remains have not been identified and were transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Burlington for identification and an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of death, Vermont State Police said in a Wednesday evening news release.
Earlier on Wednesday, police said they had found physical evidence in the disappearance of Austin Colson, who has been missing since January, and were focusing their efforts on an old barn along Beaver Meadow Road.
“We have found potential evidence” in connection with Colson’s case, Lt. John-Paul Schmidt, who is leading the investigation, said on the premises. “It is a scene we are processing right now.”
