LINCOLN, Del.- Delaware State Police are conducting a death investigation after human remains were located in a wooded stream bed near the railroad tracks in Lincoln early Tuesday afternoon.
 
Police said that at around 1 p.m. Tuesday, three teenage boys were walking along the railroad tracks north of Lincoln when they found what appeared to be human bones. According to police, the teens then went back to one of the boy's homes and informed his mother, who in turn notified troopers.

The remains were located west of the railroad tracks in a wooded area at the north end of Front Street in Lincoln, police said. The decomposed human remains were removed from the scene and turned over to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy to determine the identification as well as the cause and manner of death.
 
Detectives are continuing their investigation to determine the circumstances surrounding this incident.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the DSP Major Crimes Unit at Troop 4 at (302) 856-5850, ext. 208 or by utilizing the DSP Mobile Crime Tip Application available to download at: http://www.delaware.gov/apps/.  Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via www.tipsubmit.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."
