INDIANAPOLIS – Two Indianapolis residents who were starting renovations on a newly purchased west side home had an additional obstacle to death with—human remains.

According to a report from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, officers responded to a call Monday night at a vacant home in the 900 block of North Concord Street. The people who’d purchased the home through a Marion County surplus sale found the remains in the basement as they were starting renovation work.

Homicide detectives and the coroner were called to the scene to take possession of the remains, the report said.

The coroner’s office said the remains could take six to eight weeks to process. Officials aren’t saying if they belong to a male or female.

The case is under investigation.
