— Police are investigating the discovery of human remains found Tuesday on North Carolina State University's campus.

Investigators said the remains may be that of a homeless man. Detectives found a makeshift camp site near the body.

Investigators said there were no signs of foul play.

The decomposed remains were discovered in a field near a construction site between the school's fraternity court and the McKimmon Center, off of Western Boulevard.

Construction workers found the remains around 4 p.m. Raleigh police were called to the scene, but they handed the investigation over to NCSU police because the remains were found on campus property.

The remains were sent to the Medical Examiner's office in Chapel Hill to determine the age and sex.
