A pile of bones was spotted in the bike lane on First Avenue near 13th Street this morning, and EV Grieve believes they may be human.

Police were out this morning investigating the pile, but they had no specific information to share as of mid-day Wednesday. Photographer Scott Lynch came upon the scene this morning as well, and told us he wasn't convinced they are human remains; he speculated they may be from a garbage spill from a local restaurant, adding, "BUT WHO KNOWS? They looked gnarly as fuck, especially those spinal-column ones."

We'll update when we learn more information. For now, just watch out for those bones.

Update: A police source at the ninth precinct told Gawker that they were NOT human remains: "They were animal bones and they were removed." Police told us they officially have no further information about the mysterious bones.
