Police say they are investigating a suspicious death after finding a man’s body wrapped in a sheet in an industrial yard in Scarborough.
At about 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, police say they were called to Passmore Avenue and State Crown Boulevard after someone spotted the body in an open lot.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
The executive vice president of a nearby Gurudwara, Gursikh Sabha Canada, told CP24 that one of their volunteers was doing cleanup on the yard and located the body.
Police say the coroner has been dispatched to the scene. Divisional police detectives are on scene to determine whether the death was criminal in nature.
