Human remains found in container near Apache Lake

PHOENIX - Authorities are investigating the discovery of human remains in the desert near Apache Lake.

Phoenix TV station KTVK reports (http://bit.ly/1hVCa25) that three men who went target shooting Sunday found the remains in a large plastic container.

They say the container was taped shut and stashed deep inside a bush.

When the men opened the container, they were shocked to discover the skeletal remains and clothing of what they say appears to be a young girl.

The men immediately notified the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies responded to the scene and confirmed Monday that it's being investigated as a homicide.

They say the county medical examiner will try to identify the remains.
