More bones found at site of old roller rink
Bones found on Rainbo Roller Rink site
By Angela Rozas, Tribune staff reporter

Almost a week after construction crews demolishing the former Rainbo Roller Center found human bones in the rink's basement, Chicago police on Tuesday discovered more bones at the North Side site.

Aided by a cadaver-sniffing dog, police and workers dug and sifted most of the day, filling at least six paper bags with what appeared to be bones and bone fragments.

The bones found last week were determined to be human, a medical examiner spokesman said Tuesday. But police do not know if the bones found Tuesday belong to the same body as those found last week, said police spokesman Sgt. Edward Alonzo.

The rink was closed in March and the lot leveled to make way for a proposed condominium and townhouse development.
