    Canada - Mindemoya, Ont, Human skull found in Waggs Woods, May'16

    Photo of skull at link:


    On Tuesday, May 3, members of the Manitoulin Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to a report of found human remains in a wooded area in Mindemoya... with the anthropologist confirming that the remains are human.

    Community Services Office Constable Steve Hart told The Expositor that the OPP will now conduct a search to see if the rest of the remains are nearby as only a skull was discovered.

    Manitoulin OPP responded to a call yesterday afternoon that a community member had found unknown remains, believed to be human, in a densely wooded area known as Wagg’s Woods. The wooded area is directly off of Mindemoya’s main street, Highway 542... The remains were found at an access point off of Thorne Street.

    A human skull found on Manitoulin requires more analysis before details can be provided regarding its sex, age and how long it may have rested in the woods before its discovery.

    "The skull appears to be very old but until the anthropologists have a chance to look at it and actually date it, we can't confirm anything as far as its age," said Const. Steve Hart, community services officer with the Manitoulin OPP.
