Ontario provincial police have made an arrest in relation to a case of human remains found near Port Burwell.
The development comes just two days after OPP warned their investigation could take months.
Samuel Waters, 22, of Norfolk County is facing a charge of indignity to human remains.

Police continue to say there's no risk to public safety.
