Guam - Bones believed to be the remains of a human and an animal have been found in a cave area near Tanguisson Beach in Dededo.  The Guam Police Department received a call from a woman that she and some family members had found some possible human remains in while walking in the area.

Agents with the Criminal Investigation's Division conducted a check of the cave area and confirmed that the skeletal remains were that of a human.  The bones were photographed and transported from the scene to the Chief Medical Examiner's Office.  Dr. Aurelio Espinola examined the bones and determined that the bones were that of both human and animal.

Dr. Espinola further stated that the bones are dated as ancestral.
