KENNEBUNKPORT (AP) – The Maine medical examiner will inspect what appeared to be body parts that were discovered Sunday along the shore about a mile from former President George Bush’s summer home, police said.

A woman walking along an area known as Colony Beach discovered at least one bone and what appear to be internal organs, spokesman Stephen McCausland of the state Public Safety Department said.

“There’s no indication at this point that the body parts are human,” McCausland said.


Kennebunkport police contacted the state medical examiner’s office after the discovery and state police were also notified by local police.

McCausland said state police would not send investigators to the scene unless an examination shows the body parts are from a human. An examination was not expected before Monday.

The area where the parts were found is between a mile and 1 1/4 mile from the Bush compound, said Sgt. Chris Simeoni of the Kennebunkport police.
