This death investigation is continuing and police are assisting the Coroner.
We're expecting more information later today from Barrie Police, after the discovery of a human body, near the Bayfield ramp to the Southbound 400.
There was a very heavy police presence in the area yesterday, as officers with several crime units did their work, and removed the body for a post mortem.
It was found in a wooded area, just off the highway.
