Someone call the Jeffersonian, and get Dr. Temperance Brennan on the case. It might make a great TV show. Name it “Bones.”
O.K., so the real Smithsonian Institution was contacted after contractors first called the Metropolitan Police last week because of bones found while digging along a driveway between 3333 and 3329 Q St., N.W., as first reported in Georgetown Patch. The contractors had discovered what looked like a skull of human skeleton. An expert from the Smithsonian told Patch that the discovery was not forensic, i.e., related to a crime, but rather the bones were “obviously historic in nature.”
The home where the bones were found is across from Volta Park which in the 19th century was a cemetery for the local Presbyterian church.
