Remains in Retention Pond



Tulsa, OK – Human remains found in SUV in Tulsa pond

TULSA, Okla. (AP) Police in Tulsa have recovered skeletal remains in a pond where a human foot was found earlier this week.

Officer Leland Ashley says authorities found the remains in a sport utility vehicle that was pulled from the pond on Friday.

They haven't determined whether the foot that was found in a tennis shoe earlier this week belongs to the rest of the remains.

Ashley says the SUV traces back to a woman who was reported missing the day after Valentine's Day in 2006. It's not clear whether the remains or the foot are tied to that woman's disappearance. The remains haven't been identified yet.

The foot was found Tuesday when a woman was walking her dog near the pond and the dog pulled the shoe from the water.
