Authorities are trying to determine whether remains found on a southern New Jersey beach this weekend are human. Lower Township police say a woman found the remains Saturday while walking on the Delaware Bay beach in the Cape May County community.

They described the remains as "pretty decayed" and said they will be sent to the Southern Regional Medical Examiner's Office for further study.

The Cape May County Prosecutor's Office and Lower police cordoned off the site where the remains were found and conducted a detailed search of the area, but no more remains were found.
