A California woman went to bury her dead pet and instead dug up a mystery. The woman (in Modesto) began digging in her backyard on Saturday afternoon when she hit on something that seemed to be human bones. The sheriff’s department verified the remains were indeed human, and a detective subsequently exhumed what was described as a “decomposing body.” It’s believed the remains have been there for several months at a minimum. Law enforcement says the woman had a connection to the house but hadn’t been a resident for long. An identification and cause of death are pending.
