This is just like an episode of CSI.
The boy and his friend told police they had been building a fort when they unearthed the remains.
Burnaby cops arrived at the scene with members of Integrated Forensic Identification Services.
They have since verified that what the boys found are indeed "skeletal human remains."
The identity of the remains is not known at this point but the police say that there's no risk to public safety as they continue their investigation.
