Remains Of 5 Found At Colorado School Construction Site

IGNACIO, Colo. (March 29, 2013)--The remains of five people unearthed at a Colorado school construction site could be from a burial plot, authorities say.

The remains were discovered last week in a ball field at Ignacio Intermediate School, where a construction crew is laying a sewer line.

La Plata County Coroner Jann Smith says the bones appear to be 50 to 75 years old, and are possibly from a family burial plot.

No foul play is suspected, authorities said.

The remains are expected to stay in the ground for a couple of weeks or longer until archaeologists can excavate them and move them to a new burial site.
