Demolition Crew Finds Human Remains
Bones found on Rainbo Roller Rink site
Construction crews demolishing the old Rainbo roller rink on the North Side discovered what appeared to be human remains Wednesday afternoon. The bones were found in paper bags in a secluded section of the basement at 4836 N. Clark, the roller rink site that originally housed an ice skating rink, police said. The basement still had a maze of old ice-making equipment, and construction crews were sent scrambling after finding the bones near the machinery, police said. The remains were taken to the Cook County medical examiner's office in hopes of determining the age, gender and cause of death. An autopsy is scheduled for today.
