MISSION HILL (CBS) – The two skulls found in the basement of an apartment building on Huntington Avenue earlier this month were likely used for medical research.

That’s according to Boston police detectives.

Construction workers found the skulls in a box December 15.

The building is just a few blocks away from Harvard Medical School and the Longwood medical area.

The medical examiner’s office is still testing the skulls to identify the remains.
