DELRAY BEACH — Human skeletal remains were found inside a house Thursday in Delray Beach before the homeowner started renovation work, police said.
The homeowner and property manager entered the home on South Swinton Avenue near Southeast First Street before beginning planned repairs when they saw the remains.
Delray Beach police said it’s not known how the person died or when they died.
The remains were taken to the Palm Beach County Medical Examiner’s Office for identification.
This the second time in the past week remains have been found in South Florida. A week ago, a human skull was found at a waste facility in Pompano Beach.
