Police said no suspects have been arrested.

On Tuesday, police tape was seen at the intersection of Humpback Road and Irwin Road as well as on the other end of Humpback Road in the 3100-block.

At least three vehicles could be seen past the police tape on Humpback Road – one of them under a tent – and the area was closed off to vehicle traffic.

Const. Nancy Saggar of West Shore RCMP said the investigation is in its early stages and that police will not be releasing the victim’s name.

Investigators are seeking witnesses who may have been in the area of the 3100-block of Humpback Road between the hours of 9 p.m. and midnight on Jan. 20. Anyone who may have been a witness is being asked to come forward and speak to police.
