Police say they are investigating a suspicious death after the discovery of human remains Friday in an abandoned car behind a New Westminster apartment building.
The city's police department has called in the Lower Mainland's Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) to help investigate.
Cpl. Dale Carr of IHIT said Friday afternoon there was little he could say at this stage of the investigation.
“We do know it's a deceased human remains that are under suspicious circumstances,” Carr said.
Carr said they were not yet sure whether the remains are those of a male or female.
Police had begun a canvass of area residents in the hope of learning more about the vehicle, Carr said.
