The lifeless body of a man was discovered at the highway rest stop on Highway 55 near Ulverton.
The body was found Monday morning around 7 am by a motorist who stopped at the roadside stop at the Ulverton wool mill.
The Crime against the Person Division and the Sûreté du Québec's Forensic Identification Service were dispatched to the scene in an effort to shed some light on the death.
The SQ says it is still too early to know what could have caused the death and an investigation has begun to learn more. At press time, neither the age nor origin of the man has been determined. An autopsy will be performed at the Forensic Science and Medicine Laboratory to try to determine the cause of death.
The SQ has not revealed if any signs of violence have been found on the body, which was found on the ground, and police will not issue more details for the moment.
The rest stop and access from Porter Road were blocked so as not to interfere with the work of SQ investigators. Police are also trying to determine if any closed-circuit security cameras might reveal something about the circumstances surrounding the death.
