UPDATE 2:30 P.M. April 9

Kamloops RCMP Cpl. Cheryl Bush says they've called in the Special Investigative Unit and the coroner to deal with remains found Tuesday in Kamloops.

Bush says there is no new information as to how old the remains are, or any additional information as to the age and sex of the person found.

“The investigation is ongoing and specialists from the BC Coroners Service were attending the scene today to work with our investigators to assist in determining the identity and to jointly examine the area to determine how the remains ended up where they were discovered," said Bush. " They will also determine if there was anything suspicious in the death, that is where we are at right now."
