Hendricks County officials are investigating after human bones were found in Brownsburg Monday morning.
The bones were found in a sealed well drum on a vacant property off Maloney Road, near the Hendricks-Marion county line, and the coroner's office confirmed the bones are human.
A man who recently purchased the property about a month ago was clearing it off Monday when he found the skeletal remains inside the cylinder, police said.
A person stopped by to purchase the drum for scrap metal, and he and the landowner found the remains inside and called police.
Police said the remains appear to be male based on the clothing found with the bones.
Hendricks County officials said the remains have been there for years.
Forensics experts from the University of Indianapolis have been called to the scene.
