The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ATLANTIC -

Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Po­lice are now in­ves­ti­gat­ing what they be­lieve is a homi­cide in Syd­ney.

Po­lice re­sponded to a Prince Street address on Tuesday around 11 a.m. af­ter re­ceiv­ing the re­port of a de­ceased per­son.

Upon ar­rival to the scene, of­fi­cers dis­cov­ered the body of man in his 50s in­side his apart­ment.

At this point, po­lice say the death is sus­pi­cious in na­ture and are treat­ing it as a homi­cide.

Around noon­time on Tuesday, a por­tion of Prince Street in down­town Syd­ney was cor­doned off be­tween Char­lotte and Bentinck streets, while a po­lice of­fi­cer in a blue pro­tec­tion suit could be seen walk­ing in the area. Ad­di­tional re­sources were also dis­patched, in­clud­ing a ca­nine unit that was spot­ted in­side a po­lice ve­hi­cle.

Po­lice say they will be pro­vid­ing ad­di­tional de­tails on this mat­ter as they be­come avail­able. Mem­bers of the force’s ma­jor crime unit and foren­sic Iden­ti­fi­ca­tion units are now con­tin­u­ing with their in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Po­lice ask the gen­eral public if they have any in­for­ma­tion about this crime, to con­tact their dis­patch cen­ter at 563-5151 or Crime Stop­pers at 5628477 www.cape­bre­ton­crimestop­pers.ca.
