CARRICK (KDKA) -- Police said Friday evening that the remains of a man were found while investigating a "suspicious scene" in Carrick.

For more than six hours, a section of Parkfield Street, off Nobles Lane, remained a taped off crime scene.

Pittsburgh Police kept unauthorized people out of the area, while they gathered and photographed evidence, and canvassed the area, interviewing neighbors who lived nearby.

As investigators were wrapping up, the Pittsburgh Public Safety spokesman confirmed what had been feared.

Chris Togneri, the Pittsburgh Pubic Safety Department's public information officer, said, "Earlier today, detectives were called to the 1700 block of Parkfield Street. They were here on a missing person's investigation. While they were investigating the home, they found what appeared to be human remains. So they locked down the scene, and obtained a search warrant.

The Public Safety spokesman said police were called to the home to investigate the status of a person missing from that address.

But, he could not say for certain if the dead man lived at that home.

"At this point, there are no arrests. The investigation is ongoing, so we can't comment, but there have been no arrests," Togneri said.
