March 13, 2014, Spiritwood, Sask. – An autopsy has failed to find enough evidence to identify human remains discovered in a burned-out home on a Saskatchewan reserve.

But RCMP say there's a considerable indication that the remains are those of Iesha Star Amy Rabbitskin.

The 10-year-old girl could not be found after the blaze earlier this month on the Witchekan Lake First Nation.

Seven people managed to get out of the home when the fire broke out on March 2.

Advertisment

Hot embers prevented investigators from gaining immediate access to the debris and the remains were discovered the next day.

The cause of the fire has not been determined.
