Jawbone found in Walla Walla storage unit

Employees cleaning out a storage unit in Walla Walla discover a human jawbone.

It was found last week when employees were cleaning out a unit after a former renter fell behind in payments.

The Walla Walla Police Department says the jawbone may have been part of a human skeleton used in medical research.

A local dentist confirmed the bone is human and police are trying to track down the storage unit renter for an explanation.
