The Ontario Provincial Police is investigating a suspicious death, after the Renfrew detachment of the OPP responded to a call about 3:30 p.m. Sunday.
The call concerned the discovery of human remains in a wooded area of Greater Madawaska Township, near Norton Road, just north of Calabogie.
Police sources aren’t saying how long the person had been dead. But it’s apparently a significant period, since the police were unable to say if the body was male or female.
Under the direction of OPP Det.-Inspector Kevin Corcoran, of the OPP’s criminal investigation branch, the death is being treated as suspicious.
The OPP’s emergency response team (ERT) is assisting in the investigation.
Numerous police officers were on the scene this week, with various other units assigned to the case.
These units include the Renfrew OPP crime unit, the East Region’s crime and canine units, the OPP’s forensic unit out of Smiths Falls, and the criminal investigation branch out of Orillia.
A report from the post-mortem, which was scheduled for today, is expected to be released this week, said Sgt. Kristine Rae, media relations officer for the OPP’s East Region.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the Renfrew OPP crime unit at 613-432-3211.
