A fatal fire in Shamattawa on Saturday is being investigated as an arson/homicide and a teenager has been arrested, RCMP said this afternoon.
The 16-year-old youth has not been charged, and the investigation continues.
The chief of Shamatttawa said earlier today that one set of remains found in a local house fire belonged to an animal.
Shamattawa Chief Jeff Napoakesik said RCMP told him one set of remains belonged to a caribou.
The second set of remains located in the homes’ rubble belong to a person, he said, but they’ve not been identified.
"They’re going to give that to us. They say that should be ready later today," said Napoakesik.
The RCMP said they have not made a positive identification of the human remains.
Family members of Edward Redhead said they are continuing to grieve.
RCMP have not released Redhead’s name, but residents in the community said the young man is missing.
