Female Skeleton Found Near Highway, Bayou Body Count No. 188
Here's something you don't want to stumble upon if you're clearing out a vacant lot: a human skeleton.
Work crews did just that Wednesday afternoon, finding the partial skeleton of a woman about 1:30 p.m. near the Eastex Freeway and the Loop.
The crew was there to clear vegetation from an empty lot in the 5000 block of Neches.
The Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences has the remains and is examining them for further clues, police say.
