Police say criminal investigation leads them to 'partial human remains' in the Charles River

State Police report recovering the parts shortly after noon, near the BU sailing pavilion.

The origin of the partial remains is the subject of an ongoing investigation. In order to protect the integrity of that ongoing investigation, no further information about the partial remains is being released at this time. The public may be assured, however, that based on the investigation to date, the discovered remains do not indicate any ongoing threat to public safety.

Separately, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports the man whose body was taken out of the river last month was a 43-year-old Cambridge resident. Because authorities do not consider his death suspicious, they are not releasing his name.
