Police: Teens find human skeletal remains behind Ohio store

PARMA, Ohio (AP) — Police say two teenagers found human skeletal remains behind a store in a northeast Ohio city.

Authorities say the teens called police just after 4 p.m. Tuesday after they found the remains in a grassy area about 200 yards behind a shopping center in the Cleveland suburb of Parma. The Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County medical examiner is working with investigators to identify the decomposed remains.

Parma police could not provide any information Tuesday about the race, gender or age of the person whose remains were found.

Authorities say will look into cases involving local missing persons to help identify the remains and broaden their search if necessary.
