South Frontenac’s detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) was called to an unusual scene in Verona Friday morning.
At approximately 9:25 a.m., officers went to a construction site in the township, where human remains were excavated.
The construction site was closed until the coroner arrived.
In consultation with the forensic anthropologist, OPP deemed the site a “colonial burial.”
Following the discovery, the site was released to the owner.
