Bone fragments found at Birds Point

MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

Authorities are trying to identify some bone fragments found near the Birds Point levee.

Someone found them last month after the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers blasted the levee to open the New Madrid Floodway.

It's not clear where the bones came from, but officials say they could be very old, possibly from an ancient tribal community.
