Emergency dispatch called members of Sackville Fire and Rescue to the scene at approximately 2 p.m. to assist RCMP and paramedics, who were already at the scene.
Acting Cpl. Rene Blanchard said Saturday evening police were notified of the body by a pedestrian.
Blanchard confirmed the body was that of a male but said no further details, including the name of the victim, were being released until next of kin can be notified.
“It’s still under investigation, however, the only thing I can tell you is so far foul play is not believed to a factor in this incident.”
The coroner arrived at the scene shortly after 3:15 p.m., Blanchard said, and police will await their report.
Firefighters removed the body from the scene around 4 p.m. using the department’s off-road vehicle and trailer.
