State police say they’ve determined that bones found in a wooded area of Montville were human remains. The bones were found partially buried in the area off Oxoboxo Dam Road.
The finding was reported Sunday afternoon. To allow for the investigation, Oxoboxo Dam Road is closed to traffic and the area is being treated as a crime scene. They expect to be there through Wednesday.
An autopsy is planned by the Office of the Chief State Medical Examiner.
