Human remains were pulled from Lake Labarge earlier this week.
At approximately 8:30 p.m. on Monday, a resident called police after finding the body of an unidentified man on the east shore of Lake Laberge.
Whitehorse RCMP have since passed the case to the Yukon coroner to try and identify the man. Police say there is no public safety concern.
Chief coroner Kirsten Macdonald says she’ll need to use dental remains to scientifically confirm the identify the body.
