Update: Human remains located on Burnaby Mountain related to missing person case

Burnaby, BC – Burnaby RCMP’s Serious Crimes Unit is providing an update on the recent discovery of human remains in the Forest Grove area and a potential link to a 2015 missing person’s case.

In March of 2015, a man went missing in Burnaby and his partial remains were found later that year near Forest Grove Park in Burnaby. This man’s death was not deemed suspicious. Through forensic analysis, police are currently investigating as to whether the remains located last weekend are linked to this same case.
