A body was found in Fish Creek Park around dawn on Sunday, January 7.

A release from the Calgary Police Service states police responded to the park’s area near the Bow Valley Ranche Restaurant at approximately 7:30 am, after reports were called in of a body being found.

According to police, the body is believed to be of a Caucasian male who stood over six feet tall.

CPS has not yet determined if the death is criminal in nature or the result of a suicide, though an autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday and will hopefully shed some light on the matter, as well as the man’s identity.

Police are asking anyone who may be missing a loved one to file a missing person’s report, as the preliminary identification of the victim does not match any current reports.
