Investigators believe the human remains are related to a Calgary homicide investigation and the homicide unit and RCMP continue to work together on the case.

They have scheduled an autopsy for tomorrow, Thursday, May 11, to confirm the identity.

Additional information won’t be released until the autopsy is complete.

Anyone with information is asking to give police a call at 403-266-1234, or anonymously at Crime Stoppers online or at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

This has been a difficult time for crime in and around Calgary. It was recently announced that two of the top 25 most wanted in Canada have ties to Calgary with another one associated with Edmonton.
