A family spotted what appeared to be human remains in the waters of Lake Erie at Pottahawk Point in Norfolk County, Monday afternoon, and immediately contacted police.
Officers with the OPP Marine Unit arrived on scene and located a deceased individual who was subsequently brought back to shore.
A post mortem examination was scheduled for Tuesday in order to determine the cause of death, however foul play is not suspected and the death is not being treated as suspicious.
Further information will be released once it becomes available.
