NEWBURY, Mass. (AP) - Authorities say a puppy taking a walk on a Massachusetts beach with its owner uncovered a human bone, which led to the discovery of several others.
Bill Barrett of Newbury was walking his chocolate Labrador retriever Saturday morning on Plum Island Beach when the puppy made an unusual discovery. Barrett says it appeared to be a human leg bone, and it was still covered with a sock.
Investigators with cadaver dogs later found several more bones. Police on Sunday confirmed the bones are human.
Essex district attorney's spokeswoman Carrie Kimball Monahan tells the Globe that police are investigating and will be looking at missing-person's cases to try to identify the remains.
