Human remains found in Banff National Park
RCMP say human remains were found in Banff National Park on Tuesday and that a homicide investigation is underway in partnership with Calgary Police Service.
The remains are believed to be that of a homicide victim in Calgary.
Calgary homicide investigators were surveying an area near a rest stop off the Trans-Canada Highway just east of Banff Tuesday, after receiving a tip that human remains might be in the area.
While preparing a plan to search the area, investigators discovered the remains.
RCMP say investigators have cleared the area.
An autopsy for the victim is scheduled for Thursday.
