Two workers pruning trees that were hindering B.C. Hydro power lines have stumbled across a human skull on Department of National Defence land.
The discovery, confirmed by police on Wednesday, was made at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday in the 26200 block of Robertson Crescent.
Police have confirmed that the skull is that of a human.
A resident told The Times that generators to provide light have been set up in the neighbourhood, and ribbons of yellow police tape have marked out the perimeter of the investigation scene.
Another resident said that he saw DND personnel at the scene.
Langley RCMP spokesman Cpl. Holly Marks said that it’s too early to determine how long the skull has been at that location.
Investigators from Langley’s serious crime section are working with military police, and spent all night at the discovery site, continuing to scour the area and collect “any and all relevant evidence,” Marks said.
Anyone with information that could help police with their investigation is asked to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
