A Quincy resident discovered the remains of a person this afternoon while walking on his property, and immediately called the Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff Greg Hagwood said the body, which was located on private property between downtown Quincy and Plumas District Hospital off of Bucks Lake Road, appears to be that of a person who has been dead for several weeks. Identification found near the body included a Quincy address. Hagwood said that there are no missing person reports associated with the name on the identification, but databases are being searched for more information. The identification, may or may not belong to the deceased. The Department of Justice has been called in to help process the scene, which is being handled as a homicide, which the Sheriff described as standard operating procedure at this point in an investigation. A deputy will be standing by overnight until the Department of Justice arrives.
