Authorities are attempting to identify human remains found in the Centerville area Friday.

St. Mary Parish Sheriff Mark Hebert reported that officers were called to a cane field on La. 317 around 11:30 in the morning. A farmer had reportedly located the remains in the field.

No identification was possible, Hebert said. The St. Mary Parish Coroner’s office was contacted and an autopsy had been scheduled.

Two phone calls to the sheriff’s department requesting more details this morning were not returned by news deadline.
