The state medical examiner has determined that bones found in a shoe on the bank of the Merrimack River on Tuesday were human, Essex County prosecutors said today.

Authorities are continuing to investigate the find, Essex district attorney’s spokesman Steve O’Connell said.

The remains were found in a woman’s brown shoe on the riverbanks off of River Road in West Newbury, where workers were removing sewage treatment disks that had floated into the area from a New Hampshire treatment plant.
