The body of an unidentified man has been found behind an elementary school in the small town of St. Isidore, about an hour southeast of Ottawa.

Ontario Provincial Police officers responded to the parking lot behind École élémentaire catholique Saint-Isidore, located by de l'École, de la Salle and Guy streets, just before 11:30 a.m.

OPP spokeswoman Sgt. Kristine Rae said a young, adult male was found in a grassy area near the school.

No further details are currently available but Rae said an autopsy will take place in the coming days.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Hawkesbury Detachment of the OPP.
