The Gander RCMP is investigating the death of a 61-year-old male who was located in a ditch in the community of Glenwood.
Some school-aged children walking home for lunch today (Monday) saw the male in the ditch and quickly reported this to an adult. Members of the Gander RCMP, Traffic Services, Major Crime Unit and Forensic Identification were on scene this afternoon investigating the death.
The identity of the deceased will not be released at the request of the family. An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday (Sept. 17) to confirm the cause of death. Foul play is not suspected at this time.
