The Regina Police Service, in conjunction with the Office of the Chief Coroner, has begun an investigation following the discovery on Tuesday, October 25th, of bones at a work site on Henderson Drive. The primary task in this investigation is determining whether or not the bones are human.
At approximately 12:07 p.m. today, police were dispatched to the 200 block of Henderson Drive to a work site, where a crew was doing some site preparation and, in this process, discovered some bones. As would happen in any case where there is potential for the discovery of human remains, the Coroner was requested to the scene along with Major Crimes and Forensic Identification investigators. Detailed photographs of the bones have been sent for assessment by an expert. The first task in this investigation is to determine if the bones are human and, if they are, to then determine whether or not they are of forensic interest.
The Regina Police Service will continue this investigation in conjunction with the Office of the Chief Coroner. Police will continue to hold the scene until more information is available. There are no other details for release at this time.
