According to the Detroit Police Department, the remains are male but portions are missing, which led anthropologists and police to a dirt and debris pile near Interstate 75 and Ferry Street where the refuse from the construction site is being stored.
They’re looking for the skull and a portion of the torso. The remains are skeletal and police do not know how long they have been there.
What was recovered at the site has been taken to the Wayne County Medical Examiner for testing.
