Remains found on Niagara Escarpment
The Centre for Forensic Sciences confirming a bone found by a hiker on the Niagara Escarpment Tuesday night comes from a human skull
But Hamilton police say its too early to tell the sex or age of the person or how long the bone has been in the area.
Additional testing will be done.
The bone fragment was found in the same area where police searched for the remains of a missing woman.
Shirley Treadwell, a Stoney Creek woman with a mental disability, is beleived to have died in 2009.
Police only found about her death last June.
