HAMILTON, N.J. - Police in New Jersey are investigating whether homeless people have been burying their friends.
The Mercer County Prosecutor's Office says a search of an area near the NJ Transit railroad tracks on the Trenton-Hamilton border revealed visible markers that could be burial areas or improvised memorials.
No human remains have been found.
State police say the major crimes unit and cadaver dogs canvassed the area Wednesday. NJ Transit Police and the prosecutor's office were continuing the investigation Thursday.
The prosecutor's office says investigators were given information that graves there were of deceased homeless men, buried by fellow inhabitants of an encampment living at a factory complex that closed decades ago.  The area has apparently been used by homeless people since a short time after the factory closed
