Homicide investigators have been called to Abbotsford after a body was found in a rural blueberry field.
Sargent Judy Bird with the Abbotsford Police Department says the gruesome discovery was made by a farm worker just before five this evening.
“He did the right thing, he needed help, so he called us. But that… that’s quite an experience for him I’m sure.”
Investigators are now combing the farm at Boundary and Number 3 Roads, but Bird says while the death appears suspicious — but police know little else at this point.
“At this time we’re at the preliminary investigation stages, and so we’re just proceeding as we normally would to determine the cause of death and the identity and that such.”
Bird says its too soon to know if the incident is linked to a spate of gang violence in the town in recent months.
