Law enforcement and other officials are investigating the Tuesday discovery of extremely old human remains, possibly Native American, along Bloom Road, near the Sandusky River.

Construction personnel working along the road contacted Fremont police after discovering human bones around 1 p.m. Tuesday, according to Detective Sergeant Brian McGrady of the Sandusky County Sheriff's Office.

"It's still a pending investigation," McGrady said. He said that though the investigation is ongoing, neither homicide nor any crime is currently suspected.

Steve Irwin of the Ohio Attorney General's office confirmed that the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation and Identification had sent its crime scene unit in an assisting capacity, at the request of the Fremont Police Department, which had initially responded. The investigation was later turned over to the sheriff's office, according to Fremont Police Chief Derek Wensinger.

McGrady said the Lucas County Coroner's office was contacted to assist with the investigation and that they had determined that the remains were of significant age and possibly of Native American origin.

"We can tell that they're aged," said McGrady.

The detective said BCI agents suggested the Ohio Historical Society's Columbus office be contacted and historical society personnel agreed to assist as well.

"BCI came out just to assist us with the recovery of the bones," McGrady said. He added that he expects the investigation to be completed within two to three days.
