Human bones found in tree's roots

An anonymous person sent me this WOODTV8 story last night. As you may all know, the finding of skeletal bones in Comstock Township were not those of Mary Denise Lands, or any other known local missing women. We will keep you tracked in this latest recovery near a Van Buren County cornfield. WOODTV8- July 21, 2011 Bones found in Van Buren County

NEAR HARTFORD, Mich. (WOOD) - Human bones were found in the root system of a tree near a Van Buren County cornfield Thursday by crews harvesting fallen trees from a recent storm. The remains were discovered in an area of 65 1/2 Mile Road near Red Arrow Highway, Van Buren sheriff's officials told 24 Hour News 8.

At this time, there is no information about the person, or how and when this person died. Investigators said, though, the bones were buried more than five years ago. Authorities remain on the scene, and will continue on Friday morning with help from the Michigan State Police. 24 Hour News 8 will have more information as events develop.

I believe their saying these bones might be up to 100 yrs old because of the age of the tree... They say it doesnt seem to be a homicide but maybe someones burial spot..
