A package containing apparent human remains was found near VRE tracks south of Burke Centre, said VRE officials Wednesday evening.
What appeared to be a human body part was found in a black trash bag in Manassas Park. However, the medical examiner has not yet confirmed the origin of the remains as of early Thursday.
The area was shut down and four Virginia Railway Express trains were stopped.
Buses were brought to transport train passengers. VRE officials said they got the last passenger home around 10 p.m. Wednesday.
