Aussie police are investigating how human remains came to be spread over a highway and run over by numerous vehicles

SYDNEY - AUSTRALIAN police on Wednesday said they were investigating how human remains came to be spread over a major highway out of Sydney and run over by numerous vehicles. A motorist contacted police late on Tuesday after finding the remains on the F3 motorway, which runs north from Sydney towards the east coast city of Newcastle. Police recovered several body parts on a 400m stretch of the freeway but are still unclear about how they came to be on there. 'It appears, at this stage of the investigation, the body has been run over numerous times,' Detective Sergeant Darren Deamer said. Mr Deamer said it was possible the deceased was the victim of a hit-and-run but they could also have been murdered and the remains dumped on or near the freeway. 'It's an unexplained death, so any hypothesis could be possible,' he said. -- AFP
