The bones were found in the 1500 block of East Anderson Road at about 4:45pm Tuesday. A property owner was checking his property after a reported robbery a day before. While checking the property, he walked into a nearby wooded area and saw what he believed was a human skull. He then called police. Officers responded and found the skeletal remains of a human body, other animal bones and household trash in a heavily wooded area.
Police say the remains are completely decomposed and they have not yet determined the gender.
The investigation is continuing. Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
