Three sets of skeletal remains were found this week at an apartment building in Washington, D.C., police said on Saturday. Detectives from the homicide branch are investigating.

Police were called at 3:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday when construction workers found what appeared to be a human skull in a crawl space underneath the building, which is located in the 100 block of Wayne Place.

Officers responded to the scene and located what appeared to be human skeletal remains, police said. The remains were taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, where they were confirmed to be human remains.
