New info on bones found on Old Mission Peninsula

These bones were found buried in an Old Mission Peninsula vineyard in September.

GRAND TRAVERSE COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- We now know more about the human bones that were found buried in Old Mission Peninsula vineyard in early September.

A report by the Western Michigan School of Medicine indicates that the bones are from two bodies: a woman between the ages of 24 and 49, and a child, sex unknown, between the ages of three and six.

They were buried inside the same wooden casket.

The bones include two femurs and part of a skull.

The report said that based on the coffin in which they were found, the bones are from an older historic period.

It also said that the bones didn't indicate any sort of trauma.

7&4 News has reached out to the WMU School of Medicine to obtain the official report about the bones.
