Human remains discovered inside box

Workers make a horrifying discovery after opening up a box on a wooded lot. Inside, they found human remains. Could this be closure for a cold case?

The remains were found in Palm Beach Gardens, but, police say, they could provide answers to any case anywhere throughout the entire country.

Contractors for the Florida Department of Transportation were clearing non-native plants near the intersection of Jog Road and the Beeline Highway when one of the workers discovered the box, police said.

Police won't say how long it appears the box had been here, but, they will say, they are considering all possibilities, including that the remains could be those of a missing person.

Right now, those remains are with the Palm Beach County medical office. And workers are attempting to identify the remains and notify the next of kin if possible. After that, police are hoping to release more information.
