Tropical Storm Irene reveals human remains

As Tropical Storm Irene blasted through Connecticut it uncovered human remains from what may have been a Native American burial site.

Part of Linden Avenue collapsed from the storm and neighbors of a beach there found what they believed were human bones protruding from the embankment that the storm eroded and called Branford police. Those bones, experts have determined, likely came from an ancient Native American burial site.

Police responded to the eroded area on Aug. 29 and brought the bones to the Connecticut State Medical Examiner’s Office, who determined the bones were human, and possibly of Native American origin.
