TACOMA, Wash.-- A fisherman led Tacoma police Monday to a remote beach at Point Defiance Park where he had found two human bones.

The man told reporters he suspected the bones were human when he found them Feb. 20 in a shredded sleeping bag. He put them in his tackle box and later called police who picked them up.

The Pierce County medical examiner's office confirmed they are human.

The sleeping bag was still on the beach Monday.
