Richmond RCMP is currently on scene at a grassy marsh area after human remains were found earlier today.
Around 10 a.m. Richmond RCMP received a report that human remains had been located in a grassy marsh area. A work crew surveying the area located the remains and immediately called police.
With the assistance of the Coast Guard, investigators made their way to the area. The remains are skeletal in nature which leads investigators to believe they have been there for some time. The immediate area has been secured and a Coroner is on scene. It is not known how long the scene will be held.
