FLINT (WJRT) (11/08/2017) - Police say the remains of two bodies were found in Broome Park on Tuesday afternoon.
Flint Police Deputy Chief Devon Bernritter said the incomplete remains of two people were located in an undisclosed part of the park, which is located west of Fenton Road along 12th Street.
Investigators could not confirm the identity, gender, race or age of the remains. They were turned over to forensic examiners, who were studying them for identifying characteristics.
Flint police, the Michigan State Police and FBI agents spent much of Tuesday and Wednesday combing the rest of the park and the surrounding area, including the Southwestern Academy campus, for any additional evidence about the remains. The search included K-9 teams.
No additional evidence was found besides the remains.
Authorities wrapped up the search on Wednesday afternoon and reopened Broome Park to the public.
A man walking his dog on Tuesday morning first came across the remains, but he had an appointment to make so he couldn't direct police to the area. An MTA bus driver also found the remains about two hours later around 12:30 p.m.
“The nature of what was discovered is going to require a forensic analysis in order to make any sort of determination as to a positive identity, any specifics about the remains or anything like that,” Bernritter said.
After clearing the park, Flint police returned Wednesday evening after more bones were located in a remote area. However, officers determined the bones were not human and a neighbor said she had buried her dog in that spot a year earlier.
