UPDATE: Circumstances regarding body found near Burlington Lift Bridge not considered suspicious


After an investigation into a body that was discovered in Lake Ontario earlier today, Hamilton Police Services (HPS) have determined the cause of death is not suspicious. 

After a citizen notified police that they had seen a body floating in the water, the HPS Marine Unit was dispatched, where they found and removed the body near the Burlington Lift Bridge. 

The identity of the deceased has not been released at this time to protect the family's privacy, and the coroner will be handling the investigation moving forward.
