COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) said officers responded to a report of a human bone found at Patty Jewett Golf Course just after 8 a.m. Tuesday morning.

CSPD said its homicide unit is taking over the investigation. A spokesperson for the department said police are not releasing any information about who made the report about the bone.

Officers were seen searching the area near a small creek by the sixth hole about 100 yards from the clubhouse. A Metro Crime Lab truck and a vehicle with the El Paso County Coroner's Officer were also on scene with police.

The Patty Jewett Golf Manager said he didn't know any more details about the investigation at the golf course. The course remained open despite the investigation, but many golfers and employees had a lot of questions.

"I'm a little shocked and surprised," said golfer Joe Wilson. "This doesn't happen on Patty Jewett. I'm really surprised."

If you have any information regarding this investigation, you are asked to call CSPD at (719)444-7000. If you want to remain anonymous, you can call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at (719)634-7867.
