Several years ago, Jose Herran of New Jersey went missing. After an arson investigation in Weatherly connected a strew of local crimes, investigators were led to a property along Buck Mountain Road in Foster Township.
For several days in May of 2018, officials searched the property where they believed that Herran's remains would be found. During the search, crews on the scene could be seen digging, coming through the surrounding wooded area, and searching the septic system.
Today it was confirmed that during the search, Federal authorities have discovered what appear to be human remains at the property. The remains, described by Eyewitness News as bone fragments, have been sent out for testing.
The property is owned by Roberto Torner and Liza Robles who are connected in a multi-faceted two-year long investigation involving Weatherly Police, ATF, PSP, Butler Township Police, and Scranton Police in relation to firearms, explosives, drugs, arson, and the disappearance of Harran.
Employees of Torner and Robles charged in arson of Torner's property.
