LANGLEY (NEWS1130) – An autopsy is being done on human remains found near the Nicomekl River.
A man was out for a walk last Saturday and made the discovery.
Fraser Valley Search and Rescue is assisting the RCMP with searching the area.
Cst. Craig van Herk says the identity of the body has been determined but no details are being released until next of kin is notified. “At this point the death does not appear suspicious but we are waiting autopsy results to get further information.”
He says investigators don’t know how long the body has been there. “Investigators have said it appears as if it had been there for a little bit of time.”
The autopsy should be completed early this week.
