Human bones were discovered in the Sud-Ouest borough of Montreal on Friday evening, according to police.
Officers received a 911 call at 8:30 p.m. with a report that someone spotted a human skeleton in a wooded area near some train tracks. The area was located near Bridge and des Irlandais streets in a place where the homeless often stay, according to police spokesperson Julien Lévesque.
The scene was closed off for investigators but has since reopened. The remains are being examined by a pathologist.
Police have yet to determine the circumstances around the death, said Lévesque.
