ANCHORAGE – There was a gruesome discovery in Earthquake Park Monday afternoon.
Human remains were discovered just off the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, and Anchorage’s CSI team was called to Earthquake Park.
The police activity was shocking and frightening for the people trying to use the trail. KTVA spoke to several who said although they will go back to using the trail, they are nervous about what they might find.
“Its really scary, I like to come down here and run after work and ya know going on a walk today, and then there is all these trucks, and vans and you don't really know what its about,” said Anchorage resident and frequent trail user Bridget Psarianos.
Police won’t say how long the remains had been in that location, but plan on releasing that information after the medical examiner's office has done a full autopsy Tuesday.
