Police have released the name of a man found dead at a quarry in a wooded area northwest of Halifax.


RCMP say the body of Dillon Blair Jewett was found on Sunday afternoon in East Uniacke.
Police are treating the death of the 18-year-old from Dartmouth as a homicide.


The Mounties have released very few details, but they do say the body was found by a group of all-terrain vehicle riders who called 911.


They have not said how Jewett died.


The Mounties continue to seek information from the public that might help in their investigation.
