Human remains found while gardening in Alamo Square

An Alamo Square resident discovered human remains in the garden last month, according to police in San Francisco.

The bones were found in the 1300 block of McAllister Street on Nov. 23 by a resident who was gardening at the time of the grisly discovery.

Investigators with the medical examiner’s office later determined that the bones were human remains, police said.

Cadaver dogs brought in from the Marin County Sheriff’s Department later searched the garden, indicating that more human remains may be present, according to police.

A small area where the dogs alerted has been excavated, but no additional remains were located. The case remains under investigation.

Further details were not immediately available.
