Authorities in Morris County are investigating the discovery of what appear to be human remains found in Parsippany.

Morris County Prosecutor Robert Bianchi says the discovery was made at about noon by a landscaper working on Sylvan Drive, a little over a mile from the intersection of Interstates 80 and 287.

Parsippany police and the Morris County Prosecutor's Office are investigating.
