New Information on Thunderbolt Bones

More clues have surfaced in the mystery bones Savannah Electric crews found in Thunderbolt a few weeks ago. Police have ruled out recent homicide, but they do have some new ideas on where the bones may have come from.

After researching, police learned the bones may have come from a burial site which the Telfair Hospital used to use. Some of the people buried there may have been plagued with yellow fever.

Another lead links the bones to a man from Thunderbolt who went missing about 60 years ago.

Police are waiting for more information from crime labs and historians to make a more certain determination.
