SEBASTIAN, Florida On Sunday, April 22 at about 6 p.m., a person was using a metal detector found bone fragments in a vacant lot along U.S. 1 at the north city limits of Sebastian.
The bone fragments have been determined by the Medical Examiners Office to be that of a human. The location is adjacent and to the north of the City of Sebastian Cemetery. The person who found the bones drove to the Sebastian Police station and reported the discovery.
Patrol officers responded to the scene and secured it immediately. Detectives and crime scene personnel arrived and examined the bone fragments and performed a cursory examination of the area. The bones and material do not appear to be fresh and have likely been there for some time. The property belongs to the City of Sebastian and is under construction for expanding the cemetery grounds. A contractor had been working the site until the discovery, removing dirt and preparing the location.

It will likely take some time before we have any details on what we have. It is not likely that the remains are from the cemetery based on the location of the discovery, even though it is adjacent to the cemetery.
