Mystery surrounds human remains found in Woodridge

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Shovels, crime scene tape and a gaping hole are now present where human skeletal remains were discovered early Saturday afternoon. Two children stumbled across the bones while playing outside in a Woodridge neighborhood.

"That's really heavy brush in there. It's a dead end. Only kids could make their way through there without getting really scratched up, so if somebody wanted to dump a body some place around here, that's probably as good of a place that you can find," said longtime Woodridge resident Dave Mamer.

The skeletal remains were gathered on Saturday and are being examined by the DuPage County Coroner.

At this time, the decomposed body has not been identified as male or female. The age and cause of death remains a mystery as well.
