At approximately 10:45 AM on Friday, October 21, 2022, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to the 3000 block of Raceway Parkway in Mount Olive to perform a welfare check on a male whose family had not heard from him in several months. Deputies were unable to get an answer at the door but did locate what appeared to be a freshly dug grave on the property.  A specially trained cadaver dog was dispatched to the scene and did indicate the presence of human remains.
