McCONNELLSBURG, Pa. - Workers found bones bound with what appear to be handcuffs under a home in rural Fulton County Tuesday, and authorities were trying to determine if they are human, Pennsylvania State Police said.
The bones, found under a porch in Burnt Cabins, Pa., have been sent to an anthropologist, police said.
Trooper J.K. Adams said the bones appear to be a radius and ulna, two bones in human forearms. Jack Levisky, a forensic anthropologist at York College in York, Pa., is studying the bones for police, Adams said.
Levisky said he is examining the bones with a magnifying glass. He called the work "highly detailed and time-consuming."
Adams said he sent a photo of the cuffs to a historian in Gettysburg, Pa., for a more detailed study. They consist of two loops and metal chain. One loop was wrapped around the bones when they were found.
