Human skeletal remains were found in an unused UC Berkeley building, police said
Human skeletal remains were found in a UC Berkeley building that hadn’t been used in years, campus police said Friday.
The remains were found Tuesday in a building on the Clark Kerr campus, a venue and residence complex, the University of California Police Department said in a news release.
It is not known how many years the remains were there. The police department said there were no outstanding missing persons cases on campus.
The case remains under investigation by the Alameda County Coroner’s Office. The gender and age of the person was not released. A cause of death was not determined.
“We understand that there are many questions and anticipate that the coroner’s report will provide additional information,” the police department said.
The Alameda County Coroner’s Office did not immediately respond to a request for more information.
Authorities do not anticipate the investigation will disrupt activities on the Clar Kerr campus.
