Old human remains found at Colorado school

IGNACIO — Authorities say the remains of five people unearthed at a Colorado school where construction is under way could be from a burial plot.

The remains were discovered last week in a ball field at Ignacio Intermediate School, where a construction crew is laying a sewer line.

La Plata County Coroner Jann Smith says the bones are believed to be 50 to 75 years old, and are possibly from a family burial plot.

The Durango Herald reports no foul play is suspected.

The remains are expected to stay in the ground for a couple of weeks or longer until archaeologists can excavate them and move them to a new burial site.
