VAIL, Colorado — Authorities have determined that human remains found this summer at construction sites in Vail and Edwards likely are from a ranch burial in the late 1800s or early 1900s.
A skull was discovered at an Edwards debris site in June and linked to a construction project in Vail, where a bone was found. More remains were found in Edwards.
The Eagle County Coroner's Office and other experts determined the remains likely are a male who was between 30 and 45 when he died.
A county statement issued Tuesday said the man's identity hasn't been established.
Coroner Kara Bettis said it's possible the man was buried at a corner of the original ranch, which was common at the time.
The remains are being reinterred in Eagle County.
