Redding PD said human remains found are skeletal at new Costco site

REDDING, Calif.- The Crime Scene Investigators truck is at the scene of the construction site of the new Costco investigating skeletal human remains on the corner of South Bonnyview Rd. and Bechelli Ln. 

Redding PD told Action News Now they received a call around 5:30 Friday night and are currently working with the Sheriff's and Coroner's offices to identify the deceased person.

A group of Native American monitors, who surveil the area regularly for tribal artifacts during digging operations, found and called local authorities when they discovered the remains. 

When asked how long the remains had been there, the age and gender of the skeleton, if the person died naturally or if it was criminal investigation police told Action News Now it would be a long time before they could determine those answers. 

Police also added that the area used to have heavy transient activity before the lot was cleared for construction.  

The manager in charge of the construction site said the area is private property and refused to comment. 

Check back online or on-air as this is an ongoing investigation and Action News Now will provide details as they become available.
