More human skeletal remains found on East Side

YOUNGSTOWN — More human skeletal remains have been found on the city’s East Side.

In a situation similar to a scene last month when a dog found a human skull and brought the partial skeleton to his owner’s Vaughn Avenue home, a dog on the same street found a jawbone.

The homeowner in the 2000 block of Vaughn said the dog found the bone Tuesday evening. It was still partially covered with flesh, but the dog removed most of the flesh before its owner and officials could get the bone away from the animal.

Police say they believe the jawbone and upper skull found in late February are part of the same skeleton. That complete skeleton has not been found. Dogs skilled in finding decomposing flesh will be in the area again Saturday to continue the search.
