Remains Found At Auburn’s Jordan-Hare Stadium

Auburn_Logo_2012Ashes were among the aftermath of a weekend-long celebration of Auburn’s spectacular victory in the Iron Bowl, but not the kind you’d readily expect.

Auburn officials busy cleaning and repairing the field at Jordan-Hare Stadium on Monday came across cremated remains near the 40-yard-line along the Tigers’ sideline. No one is certain if the remains are human, but school officials did say bone fragments were confirmed to be within the ashes.
