Skeleton found where bones unearthed
Archaeologists have found an intact skeleton in a Fairfield park where human bones were unearthed over the weekend.

The skeleton was found in Sturges Park Tuesday and officials have ordered the town not to allow a contractor to work in that area of the Mill Plain Road park.

The skeleton, found in the same location where the Westport contractor unearthed a skull and bones Saturday afternoon, was in a rotted casket. The skeleton's hands were crossed in front of its pelvis.
