UPDATE: Delta police found human remains on March 3 and the B.C. Coroner’s office has identified them as belonging to 32-year-old Surrey resident Robinder Virk, who was reported missing on Jan. 11, 2016. Delta police do not think this incident is a random act and there is a low risk to the public. Due to this case now being investigated as a homicide, no further information will be released at this time.

Previous story: The Delta Police are investigating after a missing person’s case led them to finding human remains at an unoccupied home on Tsawwassen First Nations land.

Police are saying little about the case at this time, but the unoccupied home is located in the 2000-block of Tsawwassen Drive in South Delta.

Investigators say detailed forensic analysis will be needed to confirm the identity and cause of death. Police believe the remains are connected to the missing person case but until that information is confirmed, the investigation will be treated as suspicious.

Although the residence is on Tsawwassen First Nation Land, officers do not believe it is connected to the Tsawwassen First Nation.
