EVERETT, MA (WHDH) - More human remains have been found at a National Grid site in Everett where human remains were found earlier in July.
Police said they were notified after a worker found bones and clothing early Thursday morning on the property, which is on Rover Street. Officials were seen gathered around a large pile of dirt at the site. Ryan said based on the condition of the skeletal remains found earlier in July, it is estimated the victim has been dead for one to five years.
According to Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan, a preliminary investigation shows the remains appear to be from the same adult woman found on the same site on July 7.
The death is considered suspicious based on the circumstances surrounding the location and the condition of the remains. Police believe the woman’s body was placed at the site and not dumped from somewhere else.
A forensic anthropologist determined the victim is a white woman between the ages of 26 and 52 and anywhere between 5 feet 1 inch and 5 feet 9 inches tall. The remains were found along with items of clothing, include Sporto Boots, size 10; a long sleeved white t-shirt, and small Cocoa Vintage black fleece sweat pants.
Ryan said Thursday the person who the bones belong to appears to have had a fracture to the right and left side of her nose and possible have had surgery on her nose. Her teeth showed there had been loss and numerous restorations of the teeth. She also has a plate in her left leg.
The remains are now at the office of the medical examiner to confirm the second set of bones belongs to the same person. Ryan also asked for anyone who may have known the woman to come forward so she can be identified.
“What we are most concerned about is finding the people who know and loved this woman and having her identified,” said Ryan.
The case remains under investigation. Anyone with information is urged to contact police at 781-897-6600.
