A family in Philadelphia unearthed a big surprise Sunday as they worked on a new home garden - human bones and a tombstone! They were digging in the backyard of their home on the 3300 block of Kensington Avenue late in the afternoon, and what they found could hardly have been more stunning.

The name on the tombstone is Joseph Simone, with the dates 1912 to 1971.

The medical examiner was notified to take care of the remains and to help police figure out why they were there.
