Police and medical examiners are investigating the death of a person whose skeleton was found Monday in an abandoned house in West Allis.
The West Allis Police Department received a call at 3:12 p.m. Monday about a body in a residence in the 1300 block of S. 58th St., according to a news release.
"The body was located in a state of decomposition to the degree that skeletal remains were recovered. The residence was presumed unoccupied and abandoned for the past several years. The exact date/time of death is unknown at this point," the release said.
Police and the Milwaukee County medical examiner’s office are now trying to find out who the person is and how he or she died.
Police said preliminary investigation “does not indicate a danger to the community.”
