The RCMP's Major Crime Unit has made a positive identification on some bones that were discovered by police on Tuesday as human.

According to the report, the bones were discovered outside a residence on Splude Street in Dundee on Tuesday and were identified as human bones on Wednesday.

Mounties responded to a call to conduct a well-being check on 54-year old Brigitte Pelletier on Tuesday and discovered the bones.

Although they have identified the bones as human, they do not have an exact identification at this time.

 

Gilles Moreau, a 56-year-old man from Dundee, appeared in Campbellton Provincial Court on July 31 and was charged with the first-degree murder of his spouse, Brigitte Pelletier.

He was remanded into custody and returns to court on August 13, 2018.
