Mummified human remains found in NW Indiana

HEBRON, Ind. (WLS) -- Human remains found in Hebron, Ind., on Friday turned out to be mummified and are anywhere from 500 to 2,000 years old.

Archeologists hired by the Army Corps of Engineers found the remains while digging for artifacts at a site that's in the process of becoming a rock quarry. That project is now on hold.

Some neighbors said the site is an old Native American burial ground.
