Thunder Bay OPP ID body in truck as Terry Brasseur
Police say foul play not suspected in death of missing Thunder Bay man
Ontario Provincial Police said a post-mortem done Thursday revealed that the body found in a pickup truck near Shabaqua on May 20 is that of 42 year-old Terry Brasseur of Thunder Bay.
Brasseur was the focus of a missing person investigation by city police since April 17, 2015.
Officers said foul play is not suspected in his death.
Police said they were called Wednesday night at about 8 p.m. following the discovery of a body in a white Ford truck on a bush road near Shabaqua.
The truck was found about 1 km south of Highway 17 on a road about 8 km west of Shabaqua.
Police said in a statement, "A couple were checking their minnow traps in the area when they came across the vehicle."
The location is not far from an area where OPP conducted an extensive air and ground search for Brasseur in April.
