This property has a locked code entry gate and could only be accessed if the gate code was known. Bones indicated that Marcuz had been quartered and had been deceased for 2-3 months. No hide remained but there was pink flesh present on some the remaining bones as well as some cartilage still connecting some of the bones. The skull was recovered as well as one hoof which matched Marcuz’s. One of the bones of the leg showed an old injury which was also consistent with an injury Marcuz had.
