State police in Mercer County are investigating the discovery of human skeletal remains in a wooded area near Interstate 80.

Police said a hunter found the remains about 8:15 a.m. Saturday in East Lackawannock, about a half-mile north of I-80 and half-mile east of Route 19.

Police said they do not suspect foul play in the unidentified person's death.

The identification process is expected to take weeks, police said.
