INDIANAPOLIS – The Marion County Coroner’s Office says it will take weeks to determine the identity of remains found inside a west side home because they’re so badly decomposed.
The coroner sent the body to a forensic anthropologist to try to identify who it is and what happened to the individual.
Two Indianapolis residents made the discovery Monday night while beginning renovations on a home in the 900 block of North Concord Street. They came across the remains while working in the basement. They’d purchased the house last month through a Marion County surplus sale.
The coroner’s office couldn’t say if the remains were those of a man or a woman.
