They immediately called police who arrived around 6 p.m. after receiving a call for the decomposing body. John Herrell from the Lake County Sheriff's Office told local news, "Deputies responded very quickly and they met with a real estate agent and some potential buyers who were there looking at the property, which is up for sale. As they walked the property and were looking at it, they found these remains about 30 to 40 feet behind the residence there that is on the property." The property is nearly 5 acres large and the current owner is living in North Florida and will likely be questioned in regards to the remains found on their property.
"You would have to be familiar with that area or really get lucky because it's a very heavily wooded area in a remote location," said Herrell. "The home actually sits at least a quarter of a mile off of Douglas Road, so it's way back in the woods." The Sheriff speculated that the killer might be acquainted with the property due to it's remote location set far away from any roads.
