Hamilton police are hoping to have more information, perhaps as early as Friday, on the intact skull found in a Stoney Creek field last week by a hiker.
There’s still little information about the human remains, but Hamilton detectives are hoping the Centre of Forensic Sciences report will come in either today or early next week.
Part of that work is to determine if the remains belong to Shirley Treadwell.
She is the Stoney Creek woman who had severe disabilities and is believed to have died in 2009.
Her niece and caregiver, pleaded guilty to fraud and told police her Aunt’s body was buried in a shallow grave, two days after she died of natural causes.
Following the skull’s discovery, police conducted a grid search in the area of McNeilly Road and Eighth Road East, not far from where Treadwell lived.
