MILWAUKEE (AP) - A forensic anthropologist is now analyzing the human skeletal remains found by two people looking for deer antlers on Milwaukee’s northwest side.

The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner says the analysis will be used to help determine the cause and manner of death, and to identify the remains.

The Milwaukee Police Department says the remains were found in a wooded area Sunday afternoon. Inspector Stephen Basting says the remains appear to be of an adult and appear to have been there for “quite some time.”

Basting says it’s too early to tell the gender of the remains, and that investigators will check missing persons reports following the investigation by the medical examiner. He says authorities are looking into “every avenue.”
