Albemarle Police Department is investigating a death at a demolition site.

Crews demolishing the former Sagebrush Steakhouse found human remains around 3 p.m. Thursday, according to Police Chief David Dulin.

Dulin said there appears to be no signs of foul play and believes it may be the remains of a homeless person who was staying in the building. The body was heavily decomposed and has been sent for an autopsy to try and determine identity.
