Posted: Wednesday, November 29, 2000

KETCHIKAN (AP) -- Human remains found this week on Prince of Wales Island are part of an old grave site, according to the U.S. Forest Service.

Archaeologist Terry Fifield said the remains are archaeological and should not be considered a crime scene.

Fifield said a helicopter logging crew that discovered the remains handled them appropriately.

The crew called troopers and did not disturb the bones. Fifield said the remains are part of a typical grave setting and are at least several decades old.
