The discovery was made around 7:30 p.m. Ontario time.
While the body has not been positively identified, police believe it is that of 31 year-old Wayne Alan Cunningham of Nova Scotia. The cause of death is under investigation by the Coroner’s Office and the OPP Forensic Identification Unit. Details of an autopsy are not yet confirmed; however, foul play is not suspected.
Cunningham was one of two suspects in a forcible confinement and sexual assault case of a 16-year-old boy in the Upper Chelsea area of Lunenburg County. The other suspect, 47-year-old David James Leblanc, was captured on Sept. 30.
Both suspects were originally from Queens County.
