“This action follows a number of searches conducted over the last few days in the Wrexham and Gobowen area, and is believed to be linked to a historic murder.
"This is an on-going investigation and we are still attempting to identify the man and where his remains have been deposited.
"If anyone has any information to assist I’d ask they make contact with us.”
