More remains were found Thursday, the second day of their search.

A post-mortem examination is being conducted by the Ontario coroner’s office. It’s not known when those results will be released to the public.

The speed with which the remains were found was remarkable even to the lead investigator.

“We had anticipated being here for weeks, and when we found them that quickly it was a bit of a surprise,” Det.-Sgt Hank Idsinga told reporters last week.

Investigators suspended activities for the weekend, Idsinga said. Police will continue to dig as long as they get reactions from cadaver dogs at the site.
