Canton police are investigating a report of human remains inside a manhole near Saltz and Canton Center Roads.

Officers were called to the scene after a crew from the Department of Public Works told police that possible human remains were found in the sewer system in a wooded area near the Glens at Cambridge subdivision.

In pictures from SkyFOX, workers in HAZMAT suits removed a large white bag, but the contents of it were unclear.

Police said that foul play is not suspected at this time but the case is under investigation. The Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office has been contacted and is also working the case.
