MILWAUKEE (AP) - Milwaukee police are investigating the discovery of burned human remains.

Firefighters responded to a report of a fire in an alley around 5 a.m. Friday in back of a granite memorial company. Deputy Chief Terry Lintonen tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (http://bit.ly/25nnH6d ) that arriving officers found “human remains burning in a rubbish cart.”

The identity of the individual and the cause of the fire and death are under investigation. Authorities weren’t initially sure about the victim’s age, gender or name. An autopsy was planned.
