SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Police say a human skull and bones were found buried beneath a dry-cleaning business in San Francisco.

San Francisco Police officer Albie Esparza says investigators are going back in time and checking cold-case homicides and missing person reports to see if any of them could be linked to the remains found Friday.

Esparza tells the San Francisco Chronicle (https://bit.ly/1Vs5MHO) the county coroner’s office will try to obtain and analyze DNA from the remains.

He says the bones were exhumed when a contractor was trying to fix a plumbing problem at Perfect Cleaners in the trendy Lower Pacific Height neighborhood.

The coroner’s office declined to say what gender the person was and whether the bones belonged to a child or an adult.

In November, a woman gardening found human remains belonging to a child and one other person in planters outside a home near Alamo Square.
