Body found in gully
After hours of work by forensic identification officers painstakingly documenting and photographing a stretch of Station Road yesterday, police and firefighters removed a body from a gully in the northern part of the city.
The body was found down a 10-metre embankment halfway between Hwy. 15 and the CN railway tracks. Thick brush and trees filled the area. The body was on the north side of the road along a rising stretch bordered by a line of wooden guideposts.
Police said last night they would be releasing no details of their investigation.
Yellow police caution tape was strung the length of the posts and also blocked off Station Road.
A police cruiser sat at the intersection with Hwy. 15, turning away cars. A second cruiser blocked off Station Road at the CN tracks.
Two police identification officers, originally in their normal uniform and later in white coveralls, spent all morning and part of the afternoon videotaping and photographing the scene. They worked their way up the side of the road collecting potential evidence and placing it in paper bags.
