RCMP Canmore Investigates Found Human Skeletal Remains


Canmore, Alberta – On May 21, 2015 at approximately 11:30 p.m., Canmore RCMP received a call that hikers had located what appeared to be human skeletal remains in the Spray Lakes Reservoir area. Police attended the scene and located what appeared to be a human jaw bone and other bone fragments. A further search of the area is being conducted and the remains will be removed shortly to the Office of the Medical Examiner in Calgary for examination early next week.  It is too early to determine at this time if this is, or is not, a non-criminal death.

The RCMP intends to update this information as soon as the results of the Medical Examiner are known (later this) week.
