Charleston police are investigating after remains were found near The Citadel Wednesday.

According to a Citadel spokesperson, the remains were found in the water near campus. A search of the marsh area around the campus revealed the remains.

Charleston Police Department Public Information Officer Charles Francis said the search began at 10:30 a.m. as investigators followed up on clues in the case of a severed human foot found last week in an Adidas shoe at the Charleston City Marina.

Francis said the remains were found about an hour after the search began.
