Authorities in Monmouth County announced a forensic analysis of human remains discovered during the excavation of a residential construction site in Wall Township last month has not revealed any evidence indicating that the deaths were suspicious in nature. AdMonmouth County Prosecutor Raymond S. Santiago said that on Tuesday, March 12, members of the Prosecutor’s Office and the Wall Township Police Department responded to the 1100 block of Narrumson Road, where work had just begun on a foundation for a new home.

Officials stated the scene was subsequently secured, and over the following days, the soil at the site was examined, and skeletal remains were uncovered and preserved for analysis.

An anthropologist with the New Jersey State Police Forensic Anthropology Unit analyzed the remains and revealed that the bones belonged to multiple individuals, officials say. 

According to officials, while the precise age of the remains cannot be quickly determined with a high degree of accuracy, it is strongly believed that they are of an advanced age.

Additional information about this matter will be released as it becomes available, authorities say.
