Bones Found in East Greenbush Home End Up a Deer [UPDATE]
Updated at 3:30 p.m. - October 3, 2013
Bethany reported about the bones found in East Greenbush, and now there's new information. The Times Union has a story that they're not human remains. They're animal bones. Police are thinking that they may be bones from a deer.
This morning, on the Sean and Richie show, we talked about this crazy story about human remains that were found in East Greenbush!
On Wednesday, workers were doing some renovations to an old farmhouse when they stumbled upon some bones - I thought that was crazy, but I guess it happens a lot! Ninety nine percent of the time, the bones turn out to be animal bones. Not in this case!
The best guess right now is that the bones belong to a woman who went missing in 1938. Documents found in the home have led investigators to believe that a couple lived in the home in the 30s and the bones could belong to the wife.
Those documents include a ninth grader’s school paper from decades ago that contains a brief history of the town, and the home. It's vague, but does mention a person that may have gone missing from the property, and that the FBI may have been involved at the time.
East Greenbush police have put in a call to the FBI to see if they have any information on the case.
A forensics team is on site today and is working hard to find more remains. And, hopefully all of the investigators involved will be able to get to the bottom of this case!
