RCMP Investigation Underway Off Bypass
Prince George, B.C. – Prince George RCMP have numerous resources on scene following the discovery are what are believed to be human remains off Highway 97, across from Pine Centre mall.
Several officers, including personnel from the Forensic Identification Unit, converged on an area in the bushes just off the northbound lanes of the bypass early this afternoon. However, police are providing no information on the matter at this time.
Cpl Aaron Whitehouse says police became aware of the matter only recently and need time to assess the situation. Asked whether indeed a body had been discovered Cpl Whitehouse would not provide confirmation, saying only that it was not a pretty scene. He requested no photographs be taken of the immediate scene.
Police will be providing information on the matter later this afternoon.
Initial, and as yet unconfirmed information is that a trucker driving on the bypass spotted something in the gully from his cab and notified authorities.
250 News will have further information once it becomes available.
