  • Police Conclude Investigation Into Skeletal Remains Found in CBS

    Police have concluded their investigation into the discovery of human skeletal remains in CBS, while the accused in that case is scheduled to return to court tomorrow.

    In April, the RNC located skeletal remains—including a human skull—in two separate areas of Conception Bay South.

    The remains came from All Saints Anglican Cemetery in Foxtrap, the oldest of four connected to the parish. Most of the graves contained in the cemetery date to the mid-to-late 1800s.

    The bones in question were removed from a crypt—one side is engraved with the name John Butler Senior, who died in 1854 at the age of 72.

    On April 5, 20-year-old Lucas Dawe of Conception Bay South was arrested and charged with indecently interfering with human remains, possession of stolen property, and breach of a court order.

    Police indicated at that time that the investigation was ongoing, and further charges were possible. However that investigation has now closed, without any additional charges. It is unclear at this time what the accused is alleged to have been doing with the remains.

    Dawe is due back in court tomorrow to enter a plea.
