The walking and cycling path along Windsor's riverfront remains closed Monday morning as police continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding a body found in the Detroit River on Sunday.

The path is closed at the Caron Avenue pumping station west to just beyond Crawford Avenue.

Windsor police are trying to identify a body that was found at about 7 a.m. Sunday.

A woman’s body was pulled from the river, near the foot of Caron Avenue and Riverside Drive.

The major crime unit is investigating. Police said they have not yet ruled out homicide.

Police say the deceased is a white woman, believed to be 50- to 60-years-old. Police said the woman's body had bruises on it.

In a brief telephone interview Sunday afternoon, acting Staff Sgt. Alan Adams told CBC News that the body was clothed, but did not have identification.

The body has been removed from the scene and investigators are still trying to identify the deceased, Adams said.
