New Jersey snack stand employees find bag of 'suspected human remains' dangling from doorknob

A plastic bag of “suspected human remains” was found hanging on the door of a snack stand in northern New Jersey Monday morning when employees arrived for work, prosecutors said.

The snack stand sits at the Stateline Lookout, a rural spot in the town of Alpine, N.J., that offers visitors a view across the Hudson River. Employees found a bag of bones around 8 a.m. and called the police, according to the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office.
