Bones Found on Imperial Ranch Not Human

IMPERIAL - Investigators looking for the remains of Fort Stockton farmer Joe Daggett are back to square one.

A Lubbock forensic expert says every bone they found in a well near Imperial belonged to animals not humans.

The private investigator working the case hoped the remains would finally bring an end to the 20 year old cold case and help prosecutors with the Attorney General's Office wrap up the case.

Monday's findings effectively end what was two weeks of work for investigators, Equusearch and volunteers who hit ranches in the Imperial area looking for Daggett. He's been missing for more than 20 years.

There's no word yet on where the search will go from here.
