Human remains found in Philadelphia home

Investigators are working to identify the remains found on Burton Street

Police found human remains in the basement of a Philadelphia home this week and continue to search the house on Friday.

The investigation is in its infancy, which started after police received a tip earlier this week about a home on the 5200 block on Burton Street in the Wissinoming section of the city. 

"We can confirm that there is an active investigation into a property on that block which is being searched due to information received by police for human remains," Philadelphia police told Fox News Digital in an emailed statement.
