The Guam Police Department says it’s currently investigating a report of found skeletal remains by the Navy Substation in Maina.

GPD issued a release Thursday morning saying their preliminary reports suggest that on Wednesday, December 2, a ground maintenance worker discovered the skeletal remains by the jungle line near the Substation.

Detectives from GPD’S Criminal Investigation Division were activated and collected the skeletal remains.

Police say they appeared to be aged.

The remains have been taken to the Chief Medical Examiner’s office for an examination.

This case remains open pending the findings from the Chief Medical Examiner.

On Monday this week, GPD said they were investigating the report of other found skeletal remains, specifically a skull that was found along the shoreline by LA Tires in Hagatna.

GPD’S Criminal Investigation Division was activated and the skull was confiscated. That investigation is ongoing as well.

It’s unclear if there is any connection between the two sets of skeletal remains.
