Skeletal remains found under porch in Md.

By Washington Post editors

Police in the Eastern Shore town of Crisfield say workers tearing down an old porch at a Crisfield house discovered human remains under the structure.

Police were called to the house on Tuesday and after the remains were recovered and another area was dug up to look for more bones. Police say the house is more than a century old.

Police say the skeletal remains were just leg bones and joints; no other parts of the body were found.

The medical examiner's office identified the bones as human remains, but they will be taken to Baltimore for analysis and classification.

The investigation into the matter is continuing.
