Unidentified Skeletal Remains, Bayou Body Count No. 120

Investigators are trying to determine the age, race and gender of skeletal human remains found near Memorial Park yesterday afternoon.

A construction crew working near the 100 block of Detering  found the bones about 3 p.m. Wednesday, police say. The remains will be examined by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Science.

An anthropologist has confirmed the bones are human, and the investigation is continuing. 

Anyone with information is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600.
