Anthropologist to investigate remains found

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Police say a forensic anthropologist has been processing human skeletal remains discovered behind what used to be a Target department store in Antioch.

The Tennessean reported that a man cutting grass and brush near the wood line of the building discovered the body around noon on Saturday.

The Target store has been vacant since it closed early this year.

In July, Nashville-based real estate firm Oldcare McDonald LLC purchased the building for $2.7 million.
