Provincial police officers are investigating a suspicious death after a body was found in a home in Berthierville, in the Lanaudière region northeast of Montreal.

Sûreté Du Québec investigators were at the home late Thursday, and said the apartment was possibly the target of a burglary.

Police will investigate to determine whether anything was stolen from the home, and whether the victim’s body has any marks of violence.

SQ officials also say they don't yet know when the victim died.
