The death is being treated as suspicious, police said.
Police were called to the scene near Brimley Road S. at 9:05 a.m. Officers have cordoned off the area, which is at the foot of Scarborough Bluffs, to allow police to investigate.
Body was decomposed, police say
Const. David Hopkinson, spokesperson for Toronto Police Service, said police are releasing few details. Police have not said whether the body is of a man or woman, adult or child.
“Although we are investigating it as suspicious, we don’t know what caused the death,” Hopkinson said on Sunday.
