Teen died of exposure

WASAGAMACK First Nation Chief Alex McDougall says a 17-year-old boy whose body was found Wednesday died of exposure.

RCMP say they won't release any further details until they have an autopsy report. McDougall said the community will wait before commenting further.

"We lost one of our young people due to exposure," the chief said. "We are waiting on the results of the medical examiner's autopsy. (Then) we'll make final arrangements for the deceased and the family."

The boy's body was found about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday outside a residence.

McDougall said the RCMP have not issued any warnings and do not appear to be searching for suspects. Cpl. Miles Hiebert would not say whether the boy showed any signs of injury.
