HALIFAX - Investigators in Nova Scotia say they need more information before they can determine whether human remains found earlier this week near Halifax belong to missing cab driver Sergei Kostin.
RCMP spokesman Cpl. Joe Taplin says the body is that of a male Caucasian, but more forensic testing must be done to identify the man.
The body was found in a wooded area in North Preston, N.S., on Wednesday.
RCMP confirmed Thursday the man had been murdered.
The cabbie from Dartmouth, N.S., has been missing since January.
Kostin, a 40-year-old native Ukrainian, came to Halifax in 1993 and was last seen at 3:30 p.m. on Jan. 17.
