Body found at Montreal copper recycling plant

Montreal police are investigating after a body was found at a copper recycling plant in Montreal's east end. 

Montreal police Const. Danny Richer said workers at Mango Copper Industries found the body at about 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

"It's impossible for the investigators to determine the sex or the age of the body found," Richer said.

The business is located in the Rivière-des-Prairies–Pointe-aux-Trembles​ borough along 10930 Sherbrooke Street East.

Richer said investigators have not determined whether foul play was involved. Investigators are waiting for a coroner's report to determine the circumstances of the death.
