BONSALL – The San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office is investigating the discovery of human remains found Nov. 16 near the Bonsall Bridge near state Route 76.

A work crew clearing weeds near the bridge found a human skull and at least one other bone. Investigators from the San Diego County Sheriff's Department homicide detail and from the medical examiner's office were sent to investigate.

Staff from the medical examiner's office took custody of the remains, which will be examined by a forensic anthropologist, according to Sheriff's Lt. Richard Williams.

The Bonsall Bridge, also known as the San Luis Rey Bridge, spans the San Luis Rey River on an abandoned roadway between Oceanside and Bonsall. The open-spandrel arch bridge was built in 1925 and is closed to vehicles but remains open to pedestrians.
