A gruesome discovery Saturday afternoon.

A body was found in the St. Lawrence river near La Ronde.

"We received a call for a body that was found in the Lawrence river. We're now in the process to take the body and send it to the morgue for an autopsy to try to indentify that person", said police spokesperson Rafael Bergeron.

Bergeron said it seems to be the body of a man, and that it had been in the water for some time, probably for a couple of days.
