Buncombe Remains Found
Buncombe County Sheriff's investigators discover human remains in the Leicester community. The remains were found late Thursday night in the James Drive area. The remains have been sent off so investigators can determine the identity and the cause of death.
Deputies have been working alongside Asheville Police Department in conjunction with a missing person's case. 23-year-old Cheyenne VanTreese was reported missing on November 5 and was last seen on October 5. Deputies are not saying whether or not the remains are those of VanTreese. VanTreese was previously involved with Vincent Franklin, who was recently charged with first degree murder of his mother and stepfather in the same Leicester area earlier this week.
Buncombe County Sheriff Van Duncan will hold a press conference on Friday afternoon at 4 p.m. to discuss latest developments in the case.
