BAY ST. LOUIS, MS (WLOX) - Police in Bay St. Louis are investigating a grisly discovery this evening. Human remains were found Tuesday in a burn pile behind a home in the 800 block of Washington Street.

The state crime lab and forensic pathologist Dr. Paul Magary from New Orleans are on the scene assisting in the investigation. Authorities are combing the wooded area for evidence.

Police have released few details about what was found, but did say a man who lived in the area was reported missing about four days ago. Further investigation will determine if there's any connection.
