HUMAN REMAINS DISCOVERED IN BRIDGEWATER

Burned human remains were found in a barrel off of Titicut Street in Bridgewater, last Wednesday night.

 

According to the Brockton Enterprise, the remains were found in the woods on Bridgewater State Correctional Facility property.

 

The Department of Correction Complex contains the Bridgewater State Hospital, the Massachusetts Treatment Center for the sexually dangerous, the Old Colony Correctional Center and a substance abuse treatment center.

 

Both firefighters and police responded to the scene.

 

According to the Boston Globe, a human torso was also discovered close to a disposal bin behind an industrial building at 20 Readville Street in Boston’s Hyde Park neighborhood.

 

According to the Brockton Enterprise, workers for a landscaping business found the torso.

The Boston Globe said the workers smelled a “foul burning odor” at 7 a.m. Thursday morning and made the discovery.

 

A plumber who identified himself only as Tom, told the Boston Globe he examined a surveillance video of the property. He found footage of a figure throwing something on the ground and setting it on fire.

 

The person arrived between the hours of 3 and 4 a.m. in an unidentified vehicle. After, the person drove away and turned left onto Readville Street. Tom was unable to discern the gender of the unidentified person from the surveillance video.

 

The human remains in Bridgewater and Hyde Park were found about 11 hours apart, and investigators are working to see whether the two incidents are related.

 

Both Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley and Plymouth District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz are leading the death investigations.

 

Both offices are working together and sharing information for the investigations.
