Officials with the Big Spring Police Department say an FBI evidence recovery team has wrapped up its part in the investigation of human remains discovered Tuesday and now it's a matter of waiting.
â€śThat's basically the end of their involvement in the case,â€ť Sgt. Tony Everett, public information officer with the BSPD, said. â€śThey come in, process the scene and then leave. Now the evidence has been sent to the medical examiner's office in Tarrant County and is in the hands of the pathologists.â€ť
Unfortunately, there's no way to know how long it will take to receive results, Everett said.
The American Business Club is hoping for a good turnout of the slithery creatures in time for its annual Rattlesnake Roundup this weekend at the Howard County Fair Barns.
The show, held in the east barn, will be running fro 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. It's the 48th edition of the event.
AMBUCS will be purchasing rattlesnakes all day Friday and on show days until about 4 p.m. Sunday. The process is pretty simple, according to long-time club member Dub Day.
â€śHunters bring them in and we weigh them and put them in the holding pen,â€ť he said.
