The New Brunswick RCMP's Major Crime Unit is investigating the discovery of human remains in Noonan, just east of Fredericton.

The remains were found Saturday  in a wooded area off Route 10, according to Corporal Jullie Rogers-Marsh. So far, the investigation has determined that the remains are those of a man, and that he died as the result of a homicide. Police are working to confirm the man's identity.
