Police in Calgary are investigating after a body of a man was found inside a wall in a public washroom at the CORE Shopping Centre in downtown Calgary on Monday.
According to police, a maintenance worker discovered the body at around 9:30 a.m., after opening an access panel to examine a toilet’s flushing mechanism mounted inside the wall.
“Despite the circumstances of where the body was located, investigators do not suspect foul play and the death remains classified as undetermined,” police said in a release.
Police can confirm that the body located is an adult male, however, the victim’s identity and cause of death is still being determined. The Calgary Fire Department was called in to assist with the removal of the body. An autopsy will be scheduled once the body has been removed.
The investigation into when the victim died and how he ended up inside the wall is still ongoing.
As you can see, the food court is open and it's very much business as usual after the body was found inside the wall of a 4th floor bathroom in Calgary's CORE shopping centre.
