Columbus Police: Plumber reports seeing bone while doing drain inspection

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — The Columbus Police Department has responded to a call in southern Columbus after a plumber reported finding a bone while conducting a drain inspection on Monday.

Police said they received a call at about 7:47 PM from a plumber who told them what he had found in a house on the block off Marilla Road.

Earlier reports said the plumber saw a human hand down the drain through a camera. Police at the scene, however, said the plumber reported seeing what looked like a bone.

Police said they could not say what the object is, but only that it is not something that should be there.

According to the police, the owners of the house have given permission for the house to be searched and are working with the detectives. According to the police, the house was bought by the current owners five or six years ago.

The police have concluded the investigation for tonight and will continue their search on Tuesday morning.
