(Scroll down for video) The buyer of a home was horrified to find bones in a crawl space on the attic, according to police in Texas.

The Houston Police Department said that they received a call about the discovery of skeletal remains in a home located at 610 Allston St.

Police officers who arrived at the scene, removed the bones that seemed to have been scattered by animals. The remains were identified as belonging to the previous owner, 61-year-old Mary Cerruti.

The woman was reported missing more than 2 years ago. The woman’s former husband, David Cerruti, was living in Hawaii, at the time that she was reported missing.

He now lives in Brooklyn, New York. Police found several dead cats in the home when they searched it several years ago. At that time, they did not find any trace of Mary.

The new owner said that he is still planning to move into the home despite the gruesome discovery.
