Marengo Co. Authorities Find Human Remains in Sweet Water
From the West Alabama Newsroom–
Authorities in Marengo County — find human remains in a wooded area in Sweet Water.
Sheriff Richard Bates says crews looking for 64 year Melvin Tensley discovered the remains yesterday.
Tensley disappeared without a trace last week. And hasn’t been seen or heard from since.
Bates says the body was found near Jazz Activity Center — about 500 feet from where Tensley’s truck was found.
“We probably about 95 percent sure that it’s his remains. But the body went off to forensics for a autopsy,” he said.
The investigation remains ongoing.
