Medical Examiner: Bones found in Schenectady are not human
SCHENECTADY, N.Y. - A medical examiner says the bones Schenectady Police found and believed to be human near the end of Paulding Street were actually animal bones.
Police Commissioner Wayne Bennett tells NEWS10 National Grid was digging up a natural gas line to repair it on Friday afternoon when they discovered bones. Crews then called police who responded with forensic personnel.
Officers say nine bones were found and that they have been taken to the medical examiner's office for review.
Bennett says the scene has been secured, and National Grid has sealed up the hole to preserve anything else that might be down there.
Paulding Street is a dead end street about 50 feet away from Vale Cemetery.
