Victoria police are searching a property in Esquimalt, B.C. after a human skull was discovered by a new resident cleaning out an outbuilding.

In a press release, police spokesperson Bowen Osoko said the skull is bare bone and appears to have been at the property on Lampson Street for a long time.

Police and the B.C. Coroners Service are now looking for other remains.

They says it's too early to know whether they will be treating it as a suspicious death investigation.
