RCMP have determined the body found in a pond near Highway 75 on Sunday is that of a 42-year-old Winnipeg man.

The man’s body was located in a retention pond just off the busy highway in the RM of Ritchot about four kilometres south of Winnipeg.

Investigators spent all day Monday at the scene, as divers remained in the pond looking for evidence. Police also set up a large perimeter around the area, where officers on foot searched through tall grass.

An autopsy was completed, but the cause of death hasn’t been determined.

The investigating is ongoing.

The man’s name hasn’t been released.
