REDDING, Calif. - The Redding Police Department is investigating the discovery of human bones near the Cypress Bridge, one week after bones were discovered in a similar area.
Around 7:47 a.m. on Monday, police responded to 760 Cypress Avenue in Redding due to reports of bones located in a drainage canal. According to authorities, a transient found the bones in the area and presented them to security.
Deputy coroner investigators identified the remains as human.
Authorities said the bones may be related to skeletal remains found off of Park Marina Drive, near the Cypress Avenue Bridge, on July 30.
Deputies said the bones found were not fully intact, and the waterways where both sets of remains were found appear to share the same path through the city.
The bones collected from both sites will be examined by a forensic anthropologist to determine if the remains are that of a single person.
