Human remains, shoe found near office building in Juneau

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) – Juneau police say human remains were found inside a shoe near a state office building in Juneau. Police just before 12:30 p.m. Sunday received a report of possible human remains in a shoe found on the sea walk behind the state Department of Labor building. The building is just southeast of the bridge that connects downtown Juneau to Douglas Island. The black shoe and the remains were deteriorated and weathered. Police say they apparently had been outside for a long time. The shoe was a size commonly worn by men but the manufacturer, model and exact size could not immediately be determined.
