FORT MCCOY, Wis. (WEAU) - Federal and Wisconsin authorities are investigating human remains found at Fort McCoy during the weekend.

According to the Public Affairs Office at Fort McCoy, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Army Criminal Investigation Division, Monroe County Sheriff’s Office and Fort McCoy Directorate of Emergency Services are all part of the investigation, which is being led by the FBI.

A public affairs officer with the FBI says there is no reason to believe it is related to any of the evacuees, or active duty military personnel on the base. Identification of the body is pending. The FBI is working with the Monroe County Medical Examiner’s Office, who will release information at a future date once positive identification has been made.
