Investigators trying to determine how human bones ended up in Aurora Water District field

ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. - More than a dozen investigators were sifting through the dirt at a field in Adams County on Friday morning, looking for evidence.

Deputies said workers found human bones in the field Thursday on Aurora Water District property, southwest of Front Range Airport.

"They were digging a drain, using piece of equipment similar to backhoe," Sgt. Paul Gregory, spokesman for the sheriff's office told 7NEWS. "Noticed during digging and excavating -- human bones.

"We hope to find some sort of indication of who this person is," Gregory said. "No indication at all, but it's still early on in the investigation."

AIRTRACKER7 flew over the area near East 48th Avenue and Imboden Road. A close-up shot from the helicopter's camera showed yellow evidence markers sitting beside two long bones on the side of a dirt mound.
