Human Remains Found in Greenwich Park: Police

Police are investigating some human remains found in a park in Greenwich, Connecticut.

Town officials say workers at Helen Binney Kitchel Natural Park were clearing debris from a wooded section of the park Wednesday morning when they discovered the remains. 

Police have closed off the area as they investigate. The medical examiner's office has preliminarily determined the remains belonged to a human adult. 

State police say they're assisting Greenwich police on the scene at Harding and Laddison Rock roads. 

Greenwich Police Lt. David Nemecek says it doesn't appear the death happened recently.

"At this point we don't believe it is an immediate threat to the community," he said. "It seems like it was some time in the past." 

Police say they're checking missing persons reports and reaching out to neighboring towns as part of their investigation.
