Detective Inspector Tofilau Faamanuia Vaaelua said the investigation was still ongoing following the discovery on August 11.
“Our priority remains on confirming the identification of the deceased and results of further examinations and tests are still pending,” he said.
“No matter the time frame, the public can continue to be reassured that Police are committed to holding the person, or persons, responsible to account.”
Vaaelua said speculation was unhelpful to the investigation and asked anyone with concerns about the incident to contact police.
“We know any incident like this is incredibly unsettling for the community and we want people to know they can make contact with us if they have any concerns.”
The remains were found at a property in Moncrieff Avenue in Clendon Park about 1.30pm on August 11.
A large blue tent was set up on the property.
A neighbour of the property previously said there was a “wicked smell” coming from the home before police arrived.
