A police spokesperson told Global News a passerby was walking in the area when they noticed what they thought was a shoe floating in the water. As they got closer, however, they realized it was a body and contacted police.

The deceased individual was then removed from the water. Police said the age or gender of the victim wouldn’t be released until the next of kin is notified.

The circumstances surrounding the victim’s death were not immediately clear. Officers said the coroner would determine whether or not the death will be deemed suspicious.
