VAIL, Colo. (AP) — Investigators have recovered most of the human remains tied to a Vail construction site.

Work at the site resumed Monday after several bones were found last week at the site and at another spot where construction debris was taken. Officials say about 70 percent of the skeleton was then recovered at the debris site as investigators followed up on search areas identified by recovery dogs.

Eagle County coroner Kara Bettis says the latest discovery should help identify the person and determine the manner of death.
