SWEETWATER - Skeletal remains were found up in a backyard in Sweetwater.

They were found in the 500 block of Locust.

The bones included a skull and a spinal column.

Police say they were buried under an 80-year-old shed.

The homeowner discovered them when he pulled up the flooring to replace it.

Right now, investigators are not sure whether the skeletal remains belong to an animal or a human.

We're told they will be sent off for forensic analysis once the police chief returns from Austin.
