ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - For the third time in a month, investigators find human remains off of a busy street in Rockford.

Winnebago County Coroner Bill Hintz says skeletal remains were found Wednesday evening off of Newburg Road near Mill Road. Hintz said it appears animal activity has spread the remains across a wide portion of the area. He believes it will take some time before all remains are collected and a possible identity is determined.
