WESTMINSTER, Md. (WMAR) - Maryland State Police are trying to figure out how skeletal remains ended up in a vacant Westminster lot.
The preliminary investigation has revealed that a human bone was found by citizens as they walked through a vacant lot in the 500 block of Baltimore Boulevard, shortly before noon on October 6.
The walkers immediately called 911. Once police arrived, a search of the area revealed additional skeletal remains.
The remains were taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for examination and autopsy.
At this time, investigators have been unable to identify the remains but say they are consistent with a male.
Anyone who may have information is asked to call police at 410-386-3000.
