Body Found In St. Thomas

Police in St. Thomas are investigating after a body was discovered in Athletic Park.

Investigators say the remains are badly decomposed. An autopsy will be conducted at the London Health Sciences Centre.

Teenagers found the body around 11pm Sunday night underneath a railroad bridge.

Police are releasing very little information, but have not ruled out foul play. It is unknown if the body is male or female.

The public is being asked to avoid the area of the Athletic Park for the remainder of the investigation. Athletic Park is closed.

Police cannot say if the remains are that of missing St. Thomas woman, 55-year-old Cindy Brant. She was last seen in early July.

More to come.
