Prehistoric Remains found at Lake Eufaula in Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA - Officials have determined skeletal remains discovered at Lake Eufaula earlier this week, are actually from prehistoric times.

Initially, officials had reported that there were bones from two people. Now they are saying the remains are a nearly full skeleton revealed as the lake shrank, thanks to drought conditions.

Foul play had originally been suspected thanks to a cable and cinder block weighing down the bones.

Officials now think the cable and block's placement is merely a coincidence.
