UPDATE: The medical examiner has been brought in to excavate the bones found in Lake Eufala including two skulls, arm bones, teeth and other fragments.
The ME said he believes the remains are Native American and could be anywhere from 200 to 2,000 years old.
They said the area could be a burial ground because tribes often buried their dead along the water.
EUFALA,Okla.—Our state hasn’t seen much rain in the last few months and the ongoing drought is causing some people across the state to stumble upon some unexpected finds.
At Lake Eufala, the receding water has revealed two skeletons.
At first, investigators suspected foul play was involved because they found a cable and a cinder block nearby.
However, it turns out that is just a coincidence.
The medical examiner said the remains are ancient, ranging in age from 200 to 2,000 years old.
Officials were able to make that determination because marks on the teeth appear to be made by food that ancient humans ate.
