Bag of bones found in Centreville building

A mystery in one Alabama County that sounds like something from a TV crime drama.

A carpenter renovating a building in Centreville found a bag of roughly 100 pieces of bone fragments.

It was stashed in a ceiling. Centreville Police Chief Mike Nichols said he doesn't know if the bones are from a human or an animal, but he says it's been there a while.

"They're real old...small pieces, the largest being about the size of the palm of your hand," he said.

Chief Nichols said they will send the bones to the Department of Forensic Sciences to be analyzed.
