A Santa Ana public works crew found human remains Tuesday, Oct. 27, while doing work on a sewer line below a sidewalk, prompting an investigation.
The crew was doing sewer line work when they found the bones in the 1600 block of West Borchard Avenue about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, Santa Ana Police Department Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said. A representative of the Orange County Sheriff’s-Coroner’s Department determined the bones were human.
Last month, human remains that were more than a century old were found at a construction site for the OC Streetcar project. Those belonged to a person of Native American heritage and were turned over to the Native American Heritage Commission, which oversees proper burials in such cases.
