WAUKEGAN, Ill. (AP) - Authorities say bones found in a shed north of Chicago appear to be human, possibly that of a child.

The Lake County Coroner’s Office says preliminary examination of the bones found near Round Lake on Saturday appear to be those of an adolescent between 7 and 9 years old.

Lake County Sheriff’s Det. Christopher Covelli says the coroner’s office determined the skull fragments and teeth are possibly 50 to 100 years old. The fragments, along with a longer bone, were sent to a forensic pathologist and an anthropologist for a more detailed examination.

Covellis says it could be days or weeks before science is able to make a positive determination about the remains.

A caretaker of the site where the shed stands found the remains while removing items from it.
