This time the body was found offshore from LaSalle Blvd. and de l’Eglise St. near the Verdun Auditorium about 8:30 a.m., Montreal police Constable Anie Lemieux said.
The death was most likely from natural or accidental causes, she said.
There were no apparent signs of violence on the body, she added. The man, estimated to be in his 40s, had identity papers on him but police were still trying to formally identify the body Wednesday. There were no missing persons reports for the man identified in the documents, Lemieux said. An autopsy was expected to reveal the cause of death.
