Human bones found near Front Range Airport in east Adams County, sheriff's office says

ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. - Authorities are investigating human bones found near Front Range Airport in eastern Adams County.

At about 11:15 a.m. Thursday, Aurora Sanitation Division employees called the Adams County Sheriff's Office about possible human bones that they found southwest of the airport, said Sgt. Paul Gregory, spokesman for the sheriff's office.

Airtracker7's camera showed investigators collecting evidence this afternoon at the scene near East 48th Avenue and Imboden Road.

A close-up shot by Airtracker7 showed yellow evidence markers sitting beside two long bones on the side of a dirt mound. It appeared that the Aurora Sanitation workers had been excavating dirt from a culvert near a water tank in the rural area.

Gregory said investigators will return to the site on Friday morning.
