Human remains discovered in a Buena Park backyard, triggering a police investigation, turned out to be of American Indian descent and had been there for some time, police said Monday.

Police determined there was no evidence of a crime and closed the case. Arrangements were expected to be made with the Native American Heritage Commission to determine what to do with the remains, police said.

The remains were discovered about 5:45 p.m. Sunday in the 8200 block of Commonwealth Avenue, said Buena Park police Sgt. Mike Lovchik.
