“When you first find bones – you have to essentially see where they came from – it doesn’t automatically mean that the person was murdered or anything like that,” Officer Grace Gatpandan of the San Francisco Police Department told KPIX 5. “They could’ve came (sic) from another location, brought here from another state – it’s unclear – so there’s a lot of different avenues where this investigation can go.”MORE NEWS: UPDATE: Flood Waters Shut Down Lanes Of I-880; Alameda's Harbor Bay Parkway, Silverado Trail In Napa
