Human remains, skull found in yard of Valinda home

VALINDA, Calif. (KABC) -- Human remains, including a skull, have been found in the yard of a Valinda home after investigators spent more than a day digging for remains linked to a 2009 missing persons case.

The Los Angeles County coroner is working to identify the remains.

Authorities started digging at a house located in the 700 block of Elsberry Avenue around 9 a.m. Thursday after receiving information that a missing person's remains may have been buried there.

The missing person was not believed to be a resident at the location, and current residents of the home were cooperating with the investigation.

Detectives made it clear that the current owners are not considered suspects in the case.

No further details were immediately released.
