The Regina Police Service, in conjunction with the Office of the Chief Coroner, is continuing its investigation to determine if bones, found at a work site yesterday, are human or animal. Police continue to hold the site of the discovery pending further information.
At approximately 12:07 p.m. on Tuesday, October 25, 2011, police were dispatched to the 200 block ofHenderson Driveto 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 a forensic pathologist and archaeologist. The next steps in this investigation will be dictated by the results of those expert opinions. The primary task 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.
