A coroner says the bones found in the basement of a barbershop in eastern Indiana belong to prehistoric Native Americans.

Gary Engelbrecht discovered the bones in a basement vault when he opened his Fading Tradition barbershop about a year ago in Albany, about 10 miles northeast of Muncie.

But he forgot about them until last September when Delaware County Coroner Jim Clevenger came in for a haircut.

Engelbrecht mentioned the bones to Clevenger, who investigated. About 125 bone fragments were found in a deteriorating cardboard box. An anthropologist determined that they were from three prehistoric native Americans.
