AKRON, Ohio (AP) - An anthropology team is helping with the investigation of human skeletal remains discovered on a sidewalk in northeastern Ohio.

Akron police and fire crews responding to multiple 911 calls Friday about a skull on a sidewalk near a vacant lot also found a spine in the area.

Akron police said a forensic anthropologist with the Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office was called to the scene.

Officials say forensics experts will evaluate the remains to determine sex, race and identity. They say that can be a lengthy process, and there is no definite timetable for when that part of the investigation might be completed.

Authorities say an anthropology team from Mercyhurst University in Erie, Pennsylvania, is helping with the investigation at the request of the county medical examiner.
