Human bones unearthed on North Dakota farm

Email

The skeletal remains of a person were unearthed Monday afternoon on farmland a couple miles northwest of Park River, N.D., Walsh County Sheriff Lauren Wild said.

Wild said a tenant farmer was using heavy machinery to move rocks piled on a small knoll, and in doing so, found human remains not far beneath the rocks and dirt that appear to be very old.

"They've been there a long time," Wild said. "I would say decades at the very minimum."
