Hull, England: On the evening of Wednesday, December 7, officers were called to a location near Brackley Park for a report of human remains.
Due to the location's proximity to railway lines, and the fact that the land on which the remains were found reportedly belongs to Network Rail, the British Transport Police have been handling the investigation.
As of Friday, December 9, there were four separate locations indicated by tents where come scene investigators were searching.
Despite initial reports that the remains had been discovered within the park itself, investigators have clarified that the remains were located on "a railway embankment" consisting of "a small area of land that the public do not have access to."
Despite investigators seen working in multiple locations, BTP has said that they believe the remains belong to a single individual and that there is no threat to the community.
British Transport Police Detective Superintendent Stephen May said, "We believe they are remains of one person and detectives await the outcome of a port-mortem examination to identify them and establish the circumstances behind their death."
"At this stage we are unable to confirm how long the bones have been there, however it is estimated to be in excess of seven years," May stated.
The Sun speculates that investigators are possibly considering the death to been caused by a train hauling freight from the Hull docks.
As of Sunday, December 18, the victim had not yet been identified.
