Bones found by a hiker in a wooded area in Brockton have been identified as human remains, but the cause of death is unknown, officials said. A local hiker who was walking a dog discovered the bones near East Street in Brockton Monday morning, said a statement from the office of Plymouth District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz. After a preliminary investigation, the bones were confirmed to be human, and an autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death and identify the deceased, prosecutors said. State Police detectives assigned to Cruz’s office and Brockton police are investigating.
