More than a dozen police vehicles crowded around a wooded area in Falmouth today, combing through a crime scene area as though it was an archeological dig. At 3:10 PM, after an Enterprise reporter and photographer arrived on the scene, police put crime scene tape in an area the length of several hundred feet around the wooded site.

Police had been at the site since about 8:30 AM this morning, on Friday, April 20, according to neighbors.

District Attorney Michael O'Keefe and Falmouth Chief of Police Anthony Riello announced this afternoon that Falmouth officers and State Police Detectives assigned to the District Attorney's Office responded to the wooded area as the result of a report of the discovery of what appeared to be human bones.

Investigators with the assistance of the Medical Examiner's Office and State Police Crime Scene Services are in the process of recovering the bones for transport to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for further analysis and identification.

The matter remains under active investigation by the Falmouth Police and Massachusetts State Police.

Updates will be posted here as they become available.
