4/20/2008 PORT ORANGE, Fla. The sheriff's office in Volusia County says yesterday's find is being investigated as a suspicious death. The person had been dead for a few months, but it's not clear if the remains belong to a man or woman.

The group of children, ages 11 to 13, chased their ball into the large yard of the oceanfront home. They found the decomposed remains in thick grass about three feet from a sea wall.

The sheriff's office is talking to the residents of the home.

Port Orange is 6 miles south of Daytona Beach.
