Real estate agent, clients find human remains on Lake County property

Death investigation underway in Groveland

(WJZ via CNN)

GROVELAND, Fla. – A real estate agent and clients found human remains Saturday in Groveland, Lake County deputies said.

Deputies said the group was looking at property for sale on Douglas Road around 5:50 p.m. when they made the discovery.

Detectives could not fully investigate with the impeding darkness, so a deputy stood guard overnight until they could continue working Sunday morning. 

The remains were identified Tuesday morning as a 23-year-old woman who had been reported missing out of Orlando, deputies said.

Property records indicate the nearly 5-acre property on Douglas Road, north of State Road 50, has a roughly 1,000-square-foot, two-bedroom house. A County Property Appraiser's map shows the land is covered by trees, with a retention pond on the property's north end.
