Skeletal Remains Located at a Residential Construction Site On Friday, June 8th, 2018, at about 12:30 p.m., San Mateo Police officers responded to the 900 block of 10th Avenue on a report of skeletal remains being found at a residential construction site. Officers arrived and learned that a construction crew was on site digging, when they unearthed what appeared to be skeletal remains and immediately called San Mateo Police. To err on the side of caution, our detectives also responded to the location to assist with the investigation. The San Mateo County Coroner’s Office was contacted, responded to the scene, and recovered the remains. The remains will be examined by the San Mateo County Coroner’s pathologist to determine the species and if possible the cause of death. No further information is available at this time.

Over 1 million service men & women have died fighting for this country since the American Revolution. Today, we honor them and pay tribute to all who have given of themselves so that America could truly be free. The red poppy has become a symbol of Memorial Day. It was one of the only flowers to grow at the grave sites on war ravaged lands. “We cherish too the poppy red that grows on fields where valor led. It seems to signal to the skies that blood of heroes never dies.”-Moina Michael This beautiful flower also represents rest and recovery, resurrection. So while we remember those who died for our freedom this Memorial Day, we need to carry their spirit forward, and stay true to America’s beliefs. Beliefs that say all men (and women) are created equal, to love thy neighbor, to do unto others as you’d have done unto you. Do so with integrity, honor, respect, and out of love for your fellow man. 🇺🇸
