FLIN FLON — Police believe they've found the body of 59-year-old David Preston, whose house went up in flames on Saturday.
Flin Flon RCMP discovered human remains, believed to be those of Preston, when they returned for a secondary search of the burnt-out wreckage Tuesday. An autopsy is scheduled for next week in Winnipeg.
Just before 5 a.m. on Saturday, police and fire officials arrived to find the house engulfed in flames. They didn't find Preston during an initial search of the house.
The cause of the fire is under investigation but does not appear to be suspicious, according to RCMP.
