RCMP have ruled that the human remains discovered in the Irishtown Nature Park on Monday are not the result of a suspicious death.
Dennis Dollemont, platoon chief with Moncton Fire and Emergency, told Global News on Monday that they received a call at approximately 9 a.m., requesting assistance with recovering the body.
Dollemont said the body was found near the trail about a 10-minute walk into the woods.
The Mounties, members of the fire department, the coroner and Ambulance New Brunswick responded to the scene.
“We had to send an off-road vehicle with a toboggan to bring him out,” Dollemont said.
