Possible human remains found in Riverfront Park

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Another potentially disturbing discovery was made at Berkley Riverfront Park after police said someone found bones.

Police were called to the scene north of downtown Kansas City about 8 p.m. Wednesday.

Investigators said they are still trying to figure out if the remains are human bones or bones of an animal.

This is the second set of bones found near that area.  Remains were also found nearly two weeks ago near the park at Dora Street and Lydia Avenue. The remains were found near railroad tracks.

Investigators say the bones were likely there for several months. While it's unknown at this time, officials said the bones appear to be human.

The medical examiner's office came out and took them away for further examination.
