Niagara Regional Police (NRPS) say they received a 911 call late Thursday afternoon from a fisherman, who called after spotting a body in the water from his boat.
The Canadian Coast Guard and the NRPS Marine Unit responded to the location, between the Welland Canal and the Niagara River, where the body of a male was recovered.
The body has been sent to the Centre of Forensic Sciences in Toronto for a postmortem and positive identification.
The investigation remains ongoing by detectives.
Anyone who may have information is being asked to call NRPS at 905-688-4111, ext. 1022200.
