Police Analyzing Evidence to Help Identify Human Remains Found Along Creek
Saturday marked one week since a male, human skull and other bones were discovered in Cascade Creek in Frontier Park during a community cleanup, but there are still no answers on who the victim is or how his remains were there.
The discovery made by Cub Scouts brought detectives and Mercyhurst University forensic anthropologists to the scene.
They found some related human bones along the creek.
The experts said the bones were exposed to the elements for a year to a year and a half.
Erie Police Chief Dan Spizarny told Erie News Now earlier in the week that police are comparing the data to missing persons reports on file and will use dental records or DNA comparisons when needed.
Police also took the 30 bags of trash collected in the creek cleanup and will search them bag-by-bag looking for any other clues.
