Bryan police say they will notify family members before releasing the identity of the person whose remains were found Friday night.
Police found the remains in the backyard of a home in the 3500 block of Oak Hollow.
The house searched is the same home where murder suspect Christian Olsen lived.
Olsen, 20, remains in Brazos County Jail, charged with the murder of his across-the-street neighbor, Etta Jean Westbrook.
Police are not saying if Westbrook's murder and the death of the unidentified person are related.
An autopsy was performed Sunday in Austin, but police have not yet released the results.
