Investigation underway after human remains found in South LA

An investigation is underway in South Los Angeles after human remains were found in the area. 

Officials say the bones were located between two sheds near a home on 49th and Main streets around 11 a.m. Wednesday.

A gardener spotted the skeletal remains and notified the homeowner who then called police. We spoke with the homeowner who said she’s as puzzled as detectives as to how the remains got there. 

The sheds were being occupied as separate living spaces but it’s been a while since someone lived there, officials said. 

The remains are now being processed in order to determine any identification. It is not known how long they have been there for. 

This is a developing story
