Ancient human bone discovered in Eastern NC

Police in Eastern North Carolina are investigating after a “historical” human bone was found at a dog park. Rocky Mount Police said someone reported finding the bone Wednesday at the Best Friend’s Dog Park and a “preliminary investigation” revealed it was human. Police have turned to an East Carolina University forensic anthropologist and the State Bureau of Investigation for help with their investigation.  The anthropologist estimates the bone to be close to one hundred years old and police will continue to investigate the situation.
