Bones found in a Staten Island park in January are human, and the incident is now being investigated as a homicide, the NYPD said Friday.
Police first reported the discovery on the morning of Jan. 17, following a 911 call for possible skeletal remains in Mariners Marsh Park.
After months of investigation, those remains have now been confirmed as human and a homicide victim by the medical examiner's office.
But beyond that, authorities still don't know who the person is, and have made no arrests.
