BATAVIA, N.Y. (WIVB) – City of Batavia Police are working to determine whether remains recently turned into their department are human.
Officers say the remains were turned in May 18 by a relative of an elderly Seneca Avenue resident.
Apparently, the remains were found in Letchworth State Park in the 1940s or 1950s by a different family member, who passed away in the 1970s, and they remained in the Seneca Avenue home for the past 40 years or so.
Police sent the remains to the State Police Crime Lab in Albany to be processed, which will uncover whether the remains are human and provide a DNA sample.
The results are expected to take three- to four-months.
