"We had no choice," said Mike ..., 25 June 2012 [cached]
"We had no choice," said Mike Milnor, an investigator with the Campbell County Sheriff's Office.
"We had to assume the worst," Milnor said. "That it was possibly an infant or some type of human remains."
Minutes in to the search, investigators found something: A small wooden box.
"It was sealed with silicone and screws," said Milnor. "Someone went to a lot of trouble."
Once the lid was taken off, deputies had their answer.
"It looks like someone's family dog," Milnor said.
With that information the criminal case is closed, but Milnor said the Sheriff's office didn't make a wasted effort.
"Even though it is a pet, it gives our investigators a live training exercise," Milnor said.

Investigator Mike Milnor of the Campbell County Sheriff's Office announced his intention to run for sheriff, and has received the endorsement of the current sheriff, Robert Maxey.
Milnor, who is running as an independent, made his announcement Thursday outside the county's historic courthouse joined by family, Maxey - a Republican - and members of the department who support him.
Although Milnor has not filed the required paperwork for candidacy with the Campbell County registrar's office, he said he plans to run against Lt.
Milnor, 40, said he has been planning to run for office since he joined the sheriff's office in 1982 and has taken the necessary steps toward achieving his goal.He received a bachelor's degree in sociology and law enforcement from Averett University and worked as an investigator with the department for more than 10 years.In 1996, Milnor left the sheriff's office to become Campbell County's first director or public safety.He returned to the sheriff's office in 2000.For the past two years, Milnor has been the coordinator of the Central Virginia Drug Task Force and is a sworn officer for state and federal agencies.He also serves on the Regional Homicide Squad.Milnor said his experience helped him learn about managing a department, handling budgets and working with state and federal law enforcement agencies.Milnor, a Campbell County native, said if elected, he plans to bring new ideas on recruiting."I want to get the best (officers) and I want to keep them on," he said.Milnor also said he wants to build up community policing programs."I don't think a department is any better than its citizens," he said.Maxey said he is endorsing Milnor because of his qualifications."I've known Mike since he was in high school.
Milnor said his role in the drug bust was limited since it was primarily a federal case and his intention to run had nothing to do with the case.

Campbell County Sheriff Mike Milnor said methamphetamine - a stimulant that can be smoked and snorted - used to be more of a West Coast drug but is now turning up more often in Central Virginia.
Milnor praised the cooperative investigation, which has gone on for more than two years."This shows it works, and works quite well, when we pool our resources and go after these groups together," he said. - Gaddy expects smooth transition, 7 Nov 2003 [cached]
Sheriff-elect Terry Gaddy and acting sheriff Mike Milnor said Thursday that they will work together in making any last-minute administrative changes between now and Jan. 1, when Gaddy takes over as sheriff.
Milnor will then stay on as an investigator for the sheriff's office.
The two law enforcement officers met for much of the day to discuss what needs to be done between now and January.
"The stationery needs to be changed.I need a badge," Gaddy joked.
Gaddy said Milnor will work, "in the same capacity as he did before this all started. … He loves to investigate things and find the truth and that's what we do.He always excels and does a wonderful job there."
Milnor was appreciative.
"Terry didn't have to do that," Milnor said."I grew up in this department and my intent is to finish my career here.I support Terry and his administration 100 percent."
The changes will mean a $15,000 raise for Gaddy and a $30,000 pay cut for Milnor.
The sheriff's salary is about $75,000 and Milnor's salary when he was an investigator was about $45,000.
But Milnor said he is just happy he's staying with the sheriff's office.
"It's a good option for me and good of Terry to offer it too," Milnor said."Right now this suits the situation."
As for any personnel changes, Gaddy said he doesn't anticipate anyone leaving the department, which was split in its support of the two men in the election campaign.
Gaddy said he plans to spend the next seven weeks speaking with his administrative staff and making plans to initiate the projects he said throughout this campaign he wanted to bring to the county, such as the Safe Surfin' Internet safety program and Project Lifesaver that helps police track down people with Alzheimer's disease who wander off.
Milnor said he will discuss with Gaddy any items he includes in the sheriff's office's budget in December.
Two months later, Milnor announced his candidacy and received Maxey's endorsement.
Others in the department sided with Milnor.
Maxey announced in the summer that he would retire early and appointed Milnor as acting sheriff until the end of the year.Milnor has been acting sheriff since Sept. 1.
Both Milnor and Gaddy said throughout their campaigns that they wanted to run positive campaigns that focused on their plans for the department.Both asked that the negative comments from supporters on each side stop.
The race cooled during the fall and Election Day was almost anticlimactic.Gaddy easily defeated Milnor, capturing 77 percent of the votes.
In a telephone interview Wednesday, Milnor said, "People asked me if I'm bitter or upset and I've said I'm disappointed, but I'm not bitter, I'm not upset, I'm not angry or anything.Everybody in this ran honorable campaigns."
Milnor said he does not plan to run for office again, but said he might consider another management job someday.
