Homicide Investigation Turns Historical

A homicide investigation into human bones found underneath a home in Oceanside has turned into a case of historical preservation.

The Medical Examiner found the bones were very old and could possibly be of Native American origins. The office did not say how old the bones could be, but they are informing the Native American Heritage Commission of their findings.

The commission works towards the preservation of Native American remains, according to their website.

The bone fragments were found by a construction crew during a project in Oceanside's Capistrano neighborhood.
The collection of small bone fragments were found inside compacted dirt, six inches under the ground surface, said Oceanside police captain Leonard Mata in a media release.

He said the homeowner claimed that the concrete steps the bones were under had to be at least three decades old.
