WOODRIDGE – While the investigation into human remains found in Woodridge last month is still ongoing, the DuPage County Coroner's Office said new information could be released later this week.

The coroner's office, along with Woodridge police, are investigating human remains that were found in a wooded area along the 7900 block of Lemont Road on March 30 by two youth walking through the area.

A spokesperson for the coroner's office said Monday the case is still under investigation and more information could be released later this week.

Police have confirmed that the bones found were of human origin, but no indication has been given on exactly what was found, the age or sex of the deceased person, or how long the remains could have been at that location.

The investigation will also focus on a cause of death, police said.
