  • Vancouver Police investigates human remains found in recycling bin

 Vancouver Police are investigating the city’s 15th homicide after human remains were found in a large recycling bin in the water off of Kits Point yesterday morning.

“We are asking property managers for multi-dwelling buildings and local residents to check their recycling and garbage rooms to see if any large, blue, wheeled recycling containers are missing,” says Constable Tania Visintin, VPD.

The Canadian Coast Guard recovered the bin after multiple calls from people on the water on October 18 around 11 a.m. Vancouver Police and the BC Coroner’s Service attended and determined that the remains in the bin were human.

Investigators are asking anyone who observed a blue recycling bin floating in the water to call the VPD Major Crime Section at 604-717-2500.
