On Sunday 14 September at approximately 11:00pm, police attended the bush area north of Athletic Park in regards to suspected found human remains. The found body was located by teenagers who in turn notified their mother who called police. Preliminary examination reveals a human body with stages of advanced decomposition.
Along with Coroner’s Office, the Criminal Investigations Unit of the St. Thomas City Police Service is investigating.
Once the results of the post mortem are available and possible determination of cause of death is known, an additional media release will follow.
The public is asked to stay clear of Athletic Park today and possibly beyond to maintain the integrity of the scene.
