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