RPD: Human Bones Found Near City Hall

Redding Police think there’s a connection between human remains found last Tuesday and bones found Monday morning. Officers responded to 760 Cypress Avenue regarding bones located to the west of that location in a drainage canal. A transient had emerged from the underground drainage area with several bones and presented them to security who subsequently contacted police. Deputy coroner investigators responded to the scene and collected the bones, which were identified as human. The bones may be related to the skeletal remains located on July 30th off of park Marina Drive near the Cypress Street Bridge. The remains recovered were not fully intact, and the waterways where both sets of remains were recovered appear to be connected. The bones collected from both sites will be examined by a forensic anthropologist to determine if they belong to a single person. No duplicate bones have been collected from either of the two recovery locations.
