GREENWICH, Conn. — Investigators from the Greenwich Police Department were back at Binney Park again Thursday as the work continues into a case of human remains first discovered there this past spring.

Officers will supervise the planned dredging of the pond there, and were also sifting through dirt on Thursday in Helen Binney Kitchel Park Natural Park in Old Greenwich, according to the police department.

Police and forensic examiners said the skeletal remains found were the result of a fairly recent death — from a "few months to a few years” ago, police Lt. David Nemecek told the Greenwich Time.

The Greenwich Police Department has conducted an extensive search of the park since the first remains were found April 26. Greenwich Town Parks employees who were clearing debris from a wooded area in the park made the grim discovery.

Police have recovered other human bones in the area, Greenwich Time said. There is heavy tidal action in a stream connected with Binney Pond, and some remains were found far from the original discovery site, the story said.

Detective and the office of the chief medical examiner are working to determine the circumstances of the death of the person, whose age and gender have not been released, Greenwich Time said.

Any information that anyone has about the remains should be forwarded to the police anonymous tip line at 1-800-372-1176 or at tips@greenwichct.org.
