ST. CLAIR TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WJBK) -- A sheriff says body parts found in garbage bags along the road in Michigan are believed to be the remains of one person.

St. Clair County Sheriff Tim Donnellon said in a statement Friday the remains found Thursday afternoon in garbage bags are believed to be from a white male. The bags were in St. Clair and China townships, about 50 miles northeast of Detroit.

An autopsy is scheduled for Friday afternoon.

Shortly before 5 a.m. Friday, Donnellon says investigators found a bag that contained clothing and charred paperwork. They're trying to figure out whether that bag is linked to the remains.

Donnellon says authorities are seeking a middle-age white woman driving a late 1990s gray or tan sport utility vehicle.

"A citizen that came across garbage bags, but we also have some tips coming in of a vehicle that was possibly dumping garbage," said Donnellon.

If you have any information that could be connected to this case call the sheriff's department at (810) 985-8115.
