The Rocky Mount Police Department is investigating after a 'historical' human bone was found at a dog park earlier this week.
Police were called around 7:20 a.m. to the Best Friends Dog Park on Lee Street after a person said they found a bone.
The Rocky Mount Police Department Evidence Unit collected the bone and partnered with the State Bureau of Investigation and a Forensic Anthropologist from East Carolina University and determined that the bone was human.
The anthropologist said that, due to the extensive weathering, it was clear the bone is historical -- meaning it is estimated to be close to one hundred years old.
