ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Bernalillo County deputies say what was initially a report of a "suspicious item" turned into the discovery of human remains along a ditch north of Montaño near Edith.

That discovery was made around 1:40 a.m. Sunday, when detectives were also called out to the scene. BCSO officials say it is too early to confirm a cause of death, but it is being treated as suspicious.

"It's really scary," Brooks said. "It even makes me want to move out of the neighborhood. I have three kids -- two little girls and a little boy. So it's really nerve-wracking."

There is also no word yet on how old the remains may be. BCSO officials tell KOB they are unable to identify the remains and they have been sent to the Office of the Medical Investigator to identify.
