SELKIRK, MB – Human remains have been discovered in the Red River near Selkirk according to Manitoba RCMP.
A group of men fishing along the river in East Selkirk Monday evening made the gruesome discovery.
Glen Caldwell tells 680 CJOB he was a little ways from the shore when the property owner saw something.
“I guess they saw a floating boot so one of them grabbed it. I just heard him yell, ‘Oh, there’s a leg connected!’
Caldwell says the body was badly decomposed.
Mounties were called and are now investigating. They haven’t said if any foul play is suspected.
No other details have been provided at this time.
