Police mum over homicide

A full day after ATV riders discovered a body in East Uniacke, RCMP have released few details into a Hants County homicide case.

Enfield RCMP were called to East Uniacke at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday after receiving reports of a deceased male in a wooded area.

The body was located approximately 100 yards into the woods off Beaver Bank Road near the East Uniacke Road intersection, along a well-worn all-terrain vehicle path. The path runs along a quarry located at 3660 Beaver Bank Rd.

An autopsy had not been scheduled as of press time yesterday.

RCMP spokeswoman Sgt. Brigdit Leger said releasing more details may compromise the investigation.

“(We’re not releasing) Identity, age, ethnic origin, anything along those lines, not at this time,” she said. “Our goal is to protect the integrity of the investigation.”
