Skeleton found beneath Albuquerque home

Albuquerque, New Mexico (AP) 3-08

A man remodeling his 120-year-old Albuquerque home has found a human skeleton buried under the floor.

Epimenio Jaramillo says he and his brother were working on the home when part of the floor collapsed.

They started digging and found a skull and other bones.

The state Office of the Medical Investigator estimates the bones are more than 200 years old and probably are those of an American Indian.

An archaeologist is to collect the bones, which likely will be given to a nearby pueblo.
