Bones found in a crawlspace by a contractor working on a home in the Rensselaer County town of East Greenbush, across the Hudson River from Albany, have reopened a cold case from 1938.

Police said Wednesday that the homeowner put the few bones in a plastic bag and brought them to police. State and local police joined in a search for more remains on the property.

“The person who lived here disappeared in 1938,” said East Greenbush Police Detective Sergeant Matt Breig. “It was a female and we don’t even have her name.”
