Crime ruled out after Renton body found
Renton police believe that a set of human remains discovered at a construction site this week are from someone who was legally buried in a coffin on the site up to 100 years ago.

Police spent much of Thursday excavating the site at 2211 Edmonds Ave. N.E. after a developer reported finding a human jaw bone on Tuesday, said police spokeswoman Penny Bartley. Police have since found other bones, likely belonging to the same person, she said.
