Authorities on Friday finished digging up human remains that were discovered Thursday morning at a roadway construction site in Kingston, Idaho.

The Shoshone County Sheriff’s Office said officials could not determine the age or gender of the remains, which were heavily decayed.

The Idaho State Police said the remains will be transported to the Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy.

Kingston is about 30 miles east of Coeur d’Alene along Interstate 90.
