Unidentified remains found on the beach Sunday in Holden Beach led a Shallotte couple to take it to the police for identification.
Nina Clark and her husband Bob found an unusual item while walking their dogs.
“I saw something in the distance on the beach. I thought it was a conch shell, but it was not a conch shell,” Clark said.
Clark said they were at the point—the eastern end of the island—when she found what she described as a thigh bone and shin bone connected by knee cartilage and tendons.
