Construction workers find human skull while building backyard patio in Goderich
Workers were excavating soil when human remains found, police say
Ontario Provincial Police say a construction crew found human remains on a job site in Goderich Tuesday evening.
Huron County OPP responded to a call from workers at a property on St. George's Crescent around 8 p.m. saying the crew had found a partial human skull. A portion of the backyard had been excavated in January to prepare for spring construction and when crews arrive on the job site Tuesday, workers found the skull in the soil.
Police say the remains have been confirmed as human, but no other details have been released.
Members from the Huron County Crime Unit, OPP Forensic Identification Services and a forensic anthropologist from the Office of the Chief Coroner are investigating.
