Clinton County authorities are investigating the finding of human remains located near where a truck belonging to a missing Jerseyville man was found nearly 10 years ago. Jared Hanna was last seen walking a few miles from where the truck was found abandoned and out of gas in July 2011 near Centralia.
The Clinton County Sheriff’s Department says an employee was out hunting on Monday when he found a human skull and called police. An additional search of the area along Jolliff Bridge Road and Linn Street in Centralia on Monday and Tuesday resulted in the discovery of additional bones, all turned over to Illinois State Police Crime Scene Investigators. Hanna’s truck was found on Jolliff Bridge Road in July 2011.
