Police are ruling out foul play in the death of a man found dead over the weekend in Saulnierville, Digby Co.

The RCMP say they found the body of 49-year-old Oral Liboire Saulnier of Clare after getting a 911 call Saturday at 7:47 p.m.

Police initially reported the death as being suspicious. But last night the RCMP issued a release saying an autopsy was conducted yesterday afternoon and determined the sudden death wasn’t suspicious in nature.

The South West Nova Major Crime Unit and the RCMP Forensic Identification Unit assisted in the investigation.
