A partial human skeleton was found in the backyard of a residence in the City of Live Oak yesterday afternoon. From what Reporter Bryan Callahan has gathered from officials at the scene, the house is currently vacant. The owner of the property was cleaning up to prepare the property for renting when he discovered the partial skeleton near an outbuilding in the backyard. The Chico State Identification Lab arrived at the scene today, and the Sutter County Sheriff’s Department has taken over the investigation. Bryan will have a complete report on Action News Now at 5 p.m.
