Bones Found in Hall County

A lazy Sunday in the park turns up an historical find in one area town.

Zachary Castillo and his stepdad were spending the day in the Memphis City Park looking for arrowheads when they came across some human remains.

The two called the Memphis police and led them to the site.

An investigation by the Texas Rangers found no signs of foul play and determined that the bones were probably American Indian remains.

"We did not have a crime scene; what we believe we've uncovered is something of historical value to the native American community," said Jehromie Penrod, Memphis Chief of Police.

The park has been closed until the Texas Historical Commission can conduct an archaeological investigation of the area.
