Construction Workers Make Grisly Find

Construction workers face dangers on a daily basis. Their work often leads to deadly consequences. Still, yesterday, a few construction workers who were digging a trench for a gas pipeline made a ghastly discovery that would make even the most hardened construction worker white in the face. The workers, while digging, came across human bones. This all unfolded in the front yard of a residence only steps away from PS 90 in Queens.

In the mafia style discovery, workers from a private construction company were digging a trench for a natural gas line for National Grid in the front yard of a Queens home when they dug up white skeletal fragments. The bones were buried about 3 feet deep. The bones included two femur bones and other fragments ranging in size from 6 to 8 inches.

An investigation is ongoing as experts from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner's Office, including a forensic anthropologist and pathologist will try to decode when and how these bones were left. They will also conduct tests to try and determine who the person is by way of DNA testing. Sources have told the media that they believe the bones were there for at least a few decades. Meanwhile, this is all taking place in the front yard of a person's home. The family who resides there has been there for 22 years and there is no indication that they are in any way involved.

Construction workers are often good at spinning a yarn for an eager crowd. They tell a good story. These workers will certainly have a story to tell.

Stay tuned . . . Only in New York, only in New York.
