Alberta RCMP has identified the human remains that were found after emergency crews were called to a grassfire last week. The victim has been identified as 33-year-old Kyle Schuiling, a resident of Calgary. Police are continuing to treat the case as a homicide. 

According to police, the Alberta RCMP Major Crimes Unit (MCU) is continuing to investigate and needs assistance from the public; in consultation with the man's family, the MCU has released a photograph of Schuiling. A previously scheduled autopsy was completed at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Calgary last week. 

Previously, it was reported that the remains were found after the Tsuut’ina Nation Fire Department responded to a grass fire near Range Road 40 and Township Road 241 in Rocky View County, southwest of Airdrie.

"While they were extinguishing the fire, human remains were located. The Alberta RCMP Major Crime Unit was subsequently notified and deployed to take carriage of the investigation," police added.
