Police Probe Skeletal Remains Found on Long Island
Officials said they do not know if the remains are human or not.
Police are investigating the discovery of skeletal remains found in a rural area on the eastern end of Long Island.
Suffolk County Police said they received a call about the skeletal remains at about 6:30 p.m. Friday near North Street off Wading River Road in Manorville. The remains were discovered by a jogger running with a dog in the woods.
Officials said they do not know if the remains are human or not. Authorities have said the area has been used to discard human remains for some time.
An anthropologist was called in to assist in removing bones Saturday, and police say the bones appear to have been on the site for at least five years.
