The body of a dead infant was discovered Monday afternoon in a wooded area near a path along the south side of the Neebing River in Thunder Bay.

Police cordoned off the walkway between Legion Track Drive and Tarbutt Street.

Five police cruisers, a van police use when processing crime scenes and a coroner's vehicle were all on the scene, and the investigation continued into the evening.

Police released few details but said the body was found just after 1:30 pm.

They said they would have more information after the preliminary investigation was completed.

In the meantime, police are asking that anyone with information about the incident contact them or call Crime Stoppers anonymously.
