Human remains were found on UC Berkeley’s campus Tuesday, the university police department confirmed.
The department is now investigating the discovery of a human skeleton in an unused building on campus.
It was discovered at the Clark Kerr Campus, a residential hall complex and event space that is about a mile from the core campus.
The remains are skeletonized, and it is unclear how long they have been there. The department reports there are no cases of missing individuals from the campus community.
This is an active, ongoing investigation with the Alameda County Coroner’s Office, and a cause of death has not yet been determined.
This is a developing story and more details will be provided upon receipt of the coroner’s report.
