Indian gravesite found
A construction crew laying a pipeline may have unearthed an ancient Native American burial site Wednesday, according to a press release issued by the Alamogordo Department of Public Safety.

Human remains and pottery were found near a subdivision located off of South Florida Avenue.

Sgt. Det. Lee Wilder of DPS said his department, along with the Office of the Medical Investigator, are called to the scene whenever human remains are found to determine whether they are part of an archeological site or a crime scene. If it is determined to be old, the state's archeology office is contacted.
