Body pulled from Rivière des Prairies
The body of a 25-year-old man was pulled from the Rivière des Prairies Sunday afternoon near the northeastern tip of the island, police said.
A passer-by made the macabre discovery just before 2:45 p.m. along the shoreline, just north of the corner of Gouin and Saint-Jean-Baptiste Blvds.
The Montreal firefighters, assisted by Urgence Santé, recovered the body.
Montreal police say the body is that of a dark-skinned man.
An investigation is underway to determine the causes and circumstances of his death.
According to a spokeswoman, police believe this is not a criminal act.
