Human remains were found Monday on the property of an apartment complex not far from Kennesaw State University, kicking off a police investigation that is still in its early stages.

A Cobb County Electric Membership Corporation worker reported skeletal remains on the grounds of the Hawthorne at Kennesaw apartments on George Busbee Parkway just after noon, a Kennesaw police spokesman said. Photos from the scene show authorities investigating an area around a power transfer station.

Officers and detectives confirmed the remains are human, but police did not share any further information about the condition of the body or a possible cause of death.

Officials did not say if the death involved foul play.

“There are limited details available, as we are at the beginning of the investigation,” the police spokesman said.

The apartment complex is less than a mile from KSU. The Hawthorne is located across I-75 from the university but is easily accessed by Frey Road, which travels under the interstate.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Kennesaw Police Criminal Investigations Division at 770-429-4533.
