"The remains were found in the Silversmith Foothills at 8 Aileas Close. A preliminary investigation of the scene including artifacts found with the body have led us to determine that the body is from the mid 1800s" said Police Sergeant Jonathon Steel of the Manitou Police Services. The skeletal remains were found near some granite aggregate located within walking distance of the ruins on a nearby hill. "Until we know further we are treating this as an crime scene and we have called in experts from the local University to excavate the scene" he said.
"It is unusual for the body to have been buried face down without foul play being involved but it is not unheard of" said Wesley Ferguson of the University of Western Metaversia. "We do not feel this was foul play and the police members I spoke to do not think it is either. We were called in because we have the tools and expertise to properly investigate the scene that the Emergency Services do not have the budget for".
When asked why no one had discovered the remains in over one hundred years Mr. Ferguson explained "The area around the remains used to be higher in elevation, decades of the elements have worn away the earth around the granite piles and eventually declined low enough to expose the skeleton". Mr. Ferguson said it is too early to identify who the skeleton belonged to except that it belonged to a male about six feet in height.
The University will be on site for the next several weeks excavating the remains and the searching the surrounding area for any more artifacts.
