Human remains were found in the backyard of a single-family home in Florida, police said.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office confirmed to Fox News Digital that authorities responded to a neighborhood in Jacksonville, Florida on Wednesday, March 13.

Police said they were called to the residence in the evening after people working on the home noticed what appeared like two feet sticking out of the ground.

“We were working inside the house and then the owner came to us and said ‘Hey, there is something here. We have to call 911. I said OK. I was shook,” a woman, who did not want to be identified, told News4JAX.
