WATERTOWN, Conn. (AP) — State police detectives are investigating the discovery of a woman’s skeletal remains over the weekend in Black Rock State Park.
The remains were discovered Saturday near the Watertown-Thomaston town line. Police have not said who discovered the bones or how they were found.
Watertown police requested the Western District Major Crime Squad to respond to the park on Thomaston Road Saturday at 8 p.m., state police said.
Police told the Republican-American newspaper that the skeleton was headless, likely as a result of “animal activity.”
The remains were sent to the Office of the Chief State’s Medical Examiner in Farmington in an attempt to establish the woman’s identity and determine how long the body had been in the woods.
