    Human bones found under fallen tree

    NEW HAVEN – Talk about an eerie Halloween
    story. Hurricane turned Superstorm Sandy toppled a majestic old oak on
    the Upper Green and intertwined in the dirt and roots was a human skeleton.

    Police were called, as was the state medical examiner.

    But there was no horror story to be told.

    very old bones likely are centuries old dating back to when the Green
    was used as a cemetery during colonial times until the Grove Street
    cemetery was chartered in 1797. There remain an estimated 5,000 people
    buried under the Green.

    The tree toppled sometime during the
    evening on Monday during high winds from the hurricane. On Tuesday, a
    passerby noticed something unusual. It looked like human bones. She
    contacted police.

    By Tuesday afternoon, police were there in number and had contacted the medical examiner.

    Finding human bones isn’t that uncommon in the city but it often does draw a crowd.

    Happy Halloween!
