Prehistoric remains found during home construction

Nueces County Medical Examiner Ray Fernandez on Monday examined two partial skeletons found in the 8000 block of Wooldridge Road near Oso Bay. He determined the bones were prehistoric and will ship the bones to a University of North Texas anthropologist for verification, Nueces County Medical Examiner’s chief investigator Ric Ortiz said.
An archeologist also examined the bones and determined that they are Native American, said Texas Historical Commission Archeological division Director James Bruseth.
Hogan Homes, which is selling lots in the neighborhood near where the bones were found, stopped new construction until a company-hired expert determines the size of the burial site found.
