    A Maryland State Police investigation has been initiated after skeletal remains were found along a path in a vacant lot in Westminster.

    Maryland State Police Homicide investigators were contacted by the Westminster Police Department and asked to assume this investigation, according to a news release.

    Police said a human bone was found by citizens as they walked through a vacant lot in the 500 block of Baltimore Boulevard in Westminster, shortly before noon on Oct. 6.

    After investigators arrived, police said a search of the area revealed additional skeletal remains. All remains were processed and recovered at the scene by a forensic investigator and crime scene technicians. The skeletal remains were transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore for an examination and autopsy.

    Investigators are unable to identify the remains at this time, according to a police report.

    The medical examiner’s findings stated the skeletal remains were consistent with a male. Information has been communicated to police departments throughout the region and requests have been made to check missing person files for potential persons matching the currently available information. Additional forensic tests are continuing.

    Evidence obtained at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will be reviewed and used to further the investigation into the identity of the remains and the mode of death, police said.

    The State Police Homicide Unit will continue the investigation. They have been assisted by Westminster Barrack criminal investigators, State Police crime scene technicians, as well as members of the Westminster Police Department.

    Anyone who may have information is urged to contact Maryland State Police investigators immediately at 410-386-3000
