Human remains found by firefighters last weekend were identified Thursday as Bruce Harris, 76, of Minden Hills township. Police say the cause of death was determined as not suspicious.
The Minden Hills fire department received a call for the house fire on County Road 21 near Jay Lake about 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 11.
“During the initial investigation by the fire department, human remains were located inside the residence,” reads a press release from the OPP. “As a result the Office of the Ontario Fire Marshal along with the Haliburton Highland OPP crime unit and central region forensics identification unit have been asked to assist in the investigation.”
