SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island State Police say they are asking a forensic anthropologist to determine the age of possible human remains found at a construction site in South Kingstown over the weekend.

Maj. Dennis Fleming says on Wednesday that the state anthropologist with the medical examiner’s office did an initial examination of the remains and advised a follow-up with the forensic anthropologist. He says that will be conducted within the next few weeks.

The remains were found on land adjacent to the St. James Chapel, which recently sold the land to a developer to build homes.

The property at one time belonged to a Prohibition-era bootlegger named Danny Walsh, who disappeared in 1933. He was never found.
