The V.I. Police Department on St. Croix is investigating a report of human remains found Saturday on a Christiansted beach.
Police don’t believe the bones have any connection to any modern occurrence and said that the remains are extremely old. They have also contacted an archeologist for further examination.
Witnesses said they were walking down the beach near Condo Row, when they saw what appeared to be several human bones in the sand. Police were notified about 4:45 p.m., and forensic technicians were called to collect the bones.
This case will be followed up by the Criminal Investigation Bureau.
