Police were called to the Angus MacQuarrie Road around noon on Monday after a man’s body was found in the area.

Witnesses tell CTV News the body was found in the woods behind the Antigonish County Industrial Park.

It is not known at this time who made the discovery, or if there are any missing persons cases on file in the Antigonish area.
