CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Cuyahoga County Coroner has determined that there were no human remains in a bag found on Cleveland's Eastside.

Officers were called to the neighborhood of East 36th and Cedar around 11AM after city workers found a green garbage bag at the back of an abandoned house. The bag appeared suspicious and smelled funny.

Neighbors say they have been reporting a bad smell for a few days.

Still no official word on what was found in the bag at this time but we do know that it did not contain human remains.

A second garbage bag with animal remains was also discovered in the backyard.
