BIG LAKE, Alaska (KTUU) - Human remains have been found in Big Lake, and authorities say that their methods would make positive identification of the body "impossible."

The body was found on April 3 around 8 p.m., according to the Alaska State Troopers. Officers responded to a remote part of Big Lake after a report of someone finding the body.

AST wrote in a report that, due to exposure to the elements, "positive identification of the remains was impossible."

Instead, the remains will be sent to the State Medical Examiner's office to be identified with more advanced methods.

Troopers say the investigation into the death continues.
