Pulaski County Skeletal Remains Identified

The skeletal remains found in Pulaski County just two weeks ago have been identified as remains of former slaves.

The Pulaski County coroner says a man whose grandfather was caretaker of the property several years ago believes there were three graves on the land.

Researchers from the Kentucky Archaeological Survey estimate the bodies were buried between 1880 and 1910.

The remains were found when a bulldozer plowed up ground for road work.

The construction site was initially blocked off as a crime scene by investigators, not knowing the bones had been at the site for nearly a century.

Archaeologists are currently looking for a third grave.
