Citizens walking in an alley west of 149 Street between 92 and 93 Avenue discovered the remains yesterday morning, Thursday, Aug. 15, 2019.
The Edmonton Medical Examiner conducted an autopsy on the remains earlier today, the results of which are not being released at this time for investigative purposes.
Homicide detectives are circulating a poster to residents in the area regarding their investigation. They would like to speak with anyone who may have been travelling through that alley on Aug. 14-15 that may have witnessed any suspicious behaviour of individuals and/or unfamiliar vehicles in that area.
Investigators are also looking for any residential surveillance video or dash cam video of the alley in that area, which may help progress their investigation.
