Skeletal remains were found in an abandoned building in El Dorado.  The identity of the deceased person is yet to be determined.

Police said the discovery was made at about 5 pm on Wednesday January 19th, by people who were passing through the abandoned building at the corner of Green Street and Bazilon Extension.

The skeletal remains of what appeared to be a human being were found partially hidden in a pile of rubble.  Also found at the scene were a blue overall, a cushion, and several bricks.

The police were called in and a team of officers—including PC Ali, PC De Four, and PC Ottley—responded.

The remains were viewed by a district medical officer who ordered its removal from the scene to the Forensic Science Centre, pending identification and an autopsy.
