DUXBURY, Mass. (AP) – Authorities say they’ve found a box containing what appear to be human remains in Duxbury.

Police say they responded to a report Sunday morning of a suspicious box at an intersection. When officers arrived, they say they noticed a strong odor coming from the box, which was partially opened. A state police bomb unit x-rayed the package and determined that it contained what appeared to be human remains.

Authorities say the state medical examiner’s office will examine and identify the remains. State police and Duxbury police continue to investigate.
