Police have started a suspicious death investigation after unidentified human remains were found Saturday night at the former Rockwood Golf Course in western Independence.

Officers were called at about 11 p.m. Saturday to the 2400 block of South Maywood Avenue, in the undeveloped portion of the former Rockwood Golf Club, after a person discovered human remains in a wooded area near a creek. Police say they have not determined a cause of death or an approximate time how long the human remains had been at that location.

The city owns the former golf course land, including the portion to the south that has been converted into part of the community solar farm.
