Relative of resident reports finding skeletal remains inside Kettering home


KETTERING, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - The relative of a resident of a Kettering home called police to report seeing suspected skeletal remains through the window.

Captain Daniel Gangwer said the person had tried knocking at the door, but when they didn't get a response, walked around the house and looked in the window when they spotted the remains.

Kettering Police then responded tot he home on Prentice Drive around 10:30 a.m. May 31, and the Montgomery County Coroner's Office received them on June 1. So far, the identity of the remains or what cause the person's death have not been confirmed.

Police said they don't have any evidence so far in the investigation which would suggest foul play. Captain Gangwer did say they believe there were other occupants at the house where the remains were found, and the person who reported finding the remains was related to one of them.

According to the coroner, there will have to be scientific testing done to positively identify the remains.
