Sebastian Police are investigating a set of human bones found in a vacant lot near a cemetery.

A person using a metal detector in the area of US 1 near the City of Sebastian cemetery found the bone fragments on Sunday and reported them to police.

The medical examiner determined the bones to be from a human.

Police believe the bones have been there for some time.

“At this time, we do not have any idea whether the bones are very old, or recent, or a manner of death,” said Chief Michelle Morris. “It will likely take some time before we have any details on what we have. It is not likely that the remains are from the cemetery based on the location of the discovery, even though it is adjacent to the cemetery.”
