Human jawbone found in Avon park

March 3, 2011

Central Indiana police say tests on a human jawbone found in a park in Avon indicate it belonged to a person who died six months to three years ago. A worker at Washington Township Community Park about 10 miles west of Indianapolis discovered the bone in an open grassy area last week. Anthropologists told investigators the bone came from a white male. They are waiting on more forensic tests. Cadaver dogs searched the park for other remains but found nothing.
