DAWSON CREEK -- There are still more questions than answers after human remains were discovered north of Dawson Creek in April.

Dawson Creek RCMP confirmed the human remains were discovered on April 19th near 219 Road near Saskatoon Creek.

A person from a community organization was picking up garbage at the side of road when they discovered the skeletal remains.

The North District Major Crime Unit has taken over the investigation. At the time, police said it was too soon to comment on a possible victim.

The person who made the discovery told CJDC TV News that the remains had decomposed. However without forensic analysis it was impossible to say how long they had been there.

A source tells CJDC TV News that based on the bones discovered at the site, the remains of those of a female.

That rules out 3 males who have gone missing from Dawson Creek. Police have yet to find Cole Hosack who went missing on New Year’s Eve as well as Dave Domingo, who is believed to have been murdered after his body was removed from a property near Rolla.

It also rules out Denny Poole. The 14 year old from Dawson Creek was last seen in 2016 near the Kiskatinaw Bridge.

The remains of Renee Didier were discovered in the Kiskatinaw River on May 18th. It took less than two weeks for authorities to positively identify Didier and notify her family.

CJDC TV News reached out to the BC Coroners Service to ask why it has taken a month and a half to identify the remains that were discovered near 219 Road.

The Coroners Service said it is unable to comment on an investigation that is still on-going.
