Human remains found in Bath County over the Labor Day weekend

Hot Springs, VA – Bath county sheriff Robert Plecker says some human remains were found Labor Day weekend near the Lower Cascades golf course. Although there is speculation that these could be the remains of Beacher Hackney, accused of killing two of his fellow Homestead employees in March of 2009, the Sheriff cannot verify that at this time. AMR reporter Bonnie Ralston sat down with the sheriff to talk about the investigation.
