BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (Oct. 22, 2014)– The Bloomington Police Department is on the scene where human remains were found at a mobile home park.

Just after 11 a.m. Wednesday, Bloomington police responded to a call of possible human remains being found on a vacant lot at Arlington Valley Mobile Home Park located at 1600 N. Willis Dr. Property managers made the discovery while cleaning up the lot that had been vacant since a mobile home was moved from it sometime this summer.

It appeared that a plastic storage bin had been placed over the remains which was located at the rear of the vacant lot.

Upon arrival, officers and detectives confirmed the remains were human and found them to be in an advanced stage of decomposition. Initial estimates indicate the remains may be two to three months old.

No indication of age, race or gender was able to be made.

According to the Coroner, results for identification and cause of death may not be available for four to six weeks.
