More human remains found
Kamloops RCMP continue their investigation into the found human remains of Samantha Paul.
Although investigators will not reveal all the evidence that has been gained, they can confirm that some further skeletal remains, believed to be Samantha’s, have been recovered.
Several days of an intensive grounds search has come to an end at this point in the investigation.
Investigators scoured an area near White Lake and Campbell Lake where a skull was located on June 1st. The skull was later identified, through DNA, as being that of Samantha Paul who was reported missing in September of 2013.
The major crime unit will be consulting with experts on advanced methods of searching with the possibility of returning to the area at a later date if necessary.
With the assistance of the Southeast District Tactical Troop, investigators were able to closely examine the area. The assisting resources have now been released back to their home units and Kamloops RCMP will continue with the investigation.
Police are still trying to determine how Samantha Paul got to the location and what she was doing there. The RCMP are seeking the public’s assistance and hoping anyone with information will contact us.
Kamloops RCMP can be reached at (250)828-3000 or call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
