Hunters Find Human Remains in Green Brook
Forensic units working to identify remains discovered Sunday.
Two people hunting in a wooded area near Warrenville Road, in Green Brook, discovered a human skeleton Sunday evening at about 6 p.m.
A press release from Somerset County Prosecutor Geoffrey D. Soriano, Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office Chief of Detectives Stuart Buckman and Green Brook Township Chief of Police Martin Rasmussen, said detectives with the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crime Squad and the Crime Scene Forensic Unit are "processing the scene" Monday morning.
The crews were working near the top of the hillside, about 150 feet south of Hamsley Road, on a steep embankment above Warrenville Road. Some passersby said they saw detectives working on ladders on the hillside.
Prosecutor Soriano also said no identification has been made, and detectives are waiting for the state medical exminer to arrive.
One possible case police will likely consider is that of Margaret Haddican, a Warren mother of three who disappeared in October 2006. The FBI conducted a search of the wooded area near Dead River Road in June for clues in the disappearance, but none were found.
A TV program, Investigation Discovery's "Disappeared," took an interest in the case, and will be broadcasting an episode about it in February.
