Jul 25, 2013

Skeletal remains have been found in a building being renovated on Prairie Avenue in south Providence.  The bones, which included a skull and rib bones are believed to be human, but authorities won’t know for sure until an autopsy is conducted.

Providence police spokesman David Lapatin  says construction workers found the bones Wednesday afternoon in the basement of a century-old brick factory building.
