Bones found on Warren construction site ID'd

Author:

The bones found last month during construction work near a home in Warren, Minn., have been identified by a University of North Dakota anthropologist as belonging to an American Indian. Phoebe Stubblefield, assistant professor of anthropology at UND, examined the skull and a few bones and determined they belonged to an American Indian adult. The bones are of "no forensic value," Stubblefield said, meaning they have been at the site more than 50 years and could not belong to a victim of known crimes of the past few decades. But she can't yet say how old the bones may be.
