Mysterious Bones Given Proper Burial

The remains of an unknown woman were given a proper burial on Tuesday afternoon.

Her bones were found inside a home in Garrard County last month.

The coroner says the woman likely died about 50 years ago while giving birth.

Medical examiners say the remains were likely used for science. There is no way to learn her identity, unless family members come forward.

The funeral was held in the Lancaster Cemetery. A Lexington woman donated money for a plot for the bones.

While this case is now closed, Garrard County Coroner Daryl Hodge says he's hopeful one day he'll have some answers about who the remains belong to.
