BESSEMER, AL (WBRC) -

Jefferson County authorities say possible human remains were discovered inside an inactive well beneath a home in Bessemer this weekend.

Jacqueline Kimball says she was curious after she learned there was a well underneath her father's home in the 800 block of Bell Street.

On Saturday, Kimball went down 30 feet into the well to look around and found bones inside.

"The first reaction is like, 'Oh, my God, this...is some person' and the next thing was fear set in, that this is a crime, that you just knew you had to get it reported, and that's what I did," she said.

Kimball contacted authorities and the Bessemer Police Department began to investigate.

Lt. Darron Hunter with BPD said the remains are possibly human. Bessemer police and the Jefferson County Coroner's Office are working together to exhume the skeletal remains in hopes of identifying them.

We'll have the latest details on this story tonight at 5 and 6 p.m.
