Human remains found in Osteen

- The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after human remains were found in Osteen Sunday morning.

Deputies say they were called to a property on Oak View Farms Road around 9:30 a.m., after someone mowing the grass made the discovery.

The area is secluded and rural, with mostly dirt roads.

P.J. Lacette lives nearby and watched investigators move in.

“I look up and there’s an officer going by in a marked car,” she said. “We don’t get a lot of them out here because it’s pretty quiet and probably about 20 minutes later I saw another one going by and a little bit faster.”

Deputies say they’re now trying to figure out who the remains belong to and how they got there.

“You can’t help but be curious about it,” Lacette said.

People who live in the area are left with a lot of questions, but Lacette says she won’t let the mystery unfolding so close to home keep her from feeling safe.

“I have a dog training operation, so we have lots of big dogs that are here so we feel pretty secure still,” she said.
