CHICAGO (CBS)– Human remains were discovered near the Cal-Sag Channel in the Far South Side Riverdale neighborhood, the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said Sunday.

At least one human bone belonging to a male was recently found in an area near 13050 S. State St., according to the medical examiner.

It is unclear how many bones were found or how long they are believed to have been in the park.

It was initially believed the area was located in south suburban Riverdale, but police there said the address was in Chicago.

Chicago Police had no information on the discovery.
