Richmond Review

Human remains found in Richmond

Human remains were found by surveyors working in a grassy marsh area in Richmond around 10 a.m. Saturday.

Police aren't revealing the precise location of the discovery, but said in a press release issued around 3:30 p.m. that with the help of the Canadian Coast Guard, investigators have made their way to the area.

The B.C. Coroners Service is at the scene and the area has been secured.

"The remains are skeletal in nature which leads investigators to believe they have been there for some time," Richmond RCMP Cpl. Sherrdean Turley said in a press release.

For one Richmond resident, the police investigation ruined his morning jog.

‏A man with the Twitter handle @theros tweeted: "well that's new. My usual running route was closed today due to a police investigation that also happened to involve a hovercraft"
