The RCMP says it still con­sid­ers the death of a cau­casian man, whose body was found in Pla­cen­tia on New Year’s Eve, to be sus­pi­cious.

Const. Mark Bishop says the RCMP should get the au­topsy re­sults back this weekend and is hop­ing to have an up­date for the pub­lic on Mon­day.

Pla­cen­tia Mayor Wayne Power says the com­mu­nity has been as­sured by the RCMP there is no need to be con­cerned.

“Any time you have an RCMP ma­jor crime unit in your com­mu­nity for a cou­ple of days it does bring a cer­tain air of un­cer­tainty,” he says.

The RCMP says it’s ex­pected the in­ves­ti­ga­tion will con­tinue for sev­eral more days and no fur­ther in­for­ma­tion will be re­leased at this time.
