Police asking for public assistance in identifying remains found last year
COCHRANE — The RCMP is asking for help from the public to identify the remains of a man found in a community northwest of Calgary last year.
Children playing just south of Cochrane came across what locals described as a human head last October.
Police say the remains appears to belong to a Caucasian male between the ages of 20 and 60.
The individual had also suffered a broken nose that had healed.
Investigators say the remains decomposed for less than a year prior to their discovery.
The RCMP is hoping someone will know who the man was and will help with the investigation.
