Winnipeg police say it was the body of an unidentified adult male who was pulled from the Red River Wednesday morning.
Someone living on Scotia Drive first spotted a body in the water shortly before 10 a.m., and called 911. The Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service rescue boat recovered the body just off the shore at the park about 10:30 a.m.
The identity of the male is unknown.
Police spokesman Const. Rob Carver said it could be possible the man had no identification or that the body was in an advanced state of decomposition.
An autopsy will happen Thursday morning at the earliest and could take days before the results are announced, Carver said.
The cause of death is unconfirmed.
“It is too early to tell if foul play is suspected,” Carver said.
