    A demolition crew tearing down a house in Greenville last owned by a former Mercer County district attorney and physician discovered three human bones Thursday morning while digging through the basement floor.


    Employees of G & R Excavating, Tyrone, Pa., were demolishing the house at 103 Shenango St. behind Sheetz, which the company recently bought from Dr. Sam Orr to make way for a larger gas station, said Dennis Stephens, chief of Greenville-West Salem Township police.

    The crew immediately stopped the excavator they were using when workmen spotted bones among the rubble and called police, Stephens said.

    Mercer County Deputy Coroner John Libonati, a former paramedic, was called to the scene and determined the three, intact bones made up one human arm.

    A forensic anthropology team from Mercyhurst College, Erie, was also called and arrived around 5:30 p.m. and began digging, sifting and photographing the area.
