Police investigate report of jars of human remains



CALEDONIA, Wis. (AP) -- Police in southeastern Wisconsin are trying to reach the former owner of a property where a worker reported finding jars of human remains, which mysteriously vanished before officers arrived to investigate.

Caledonia police say the home was owned by a doctor who moved out of state about seven years ago. Lt. Gary Larsen says the jars of remains were found in a shed last week by a woman working at the property. He says the woman told some friends who took photos and later called police.

The Racine Journal Times (http://bit.ly/KFlnfg ) reports the photos show what appear to be an eyeball, brain and another unidentified organ in formaldehyde.

Police say when they went to investigate, the jars were gone. Larsen says it appears to be a burglary.
