Cape Breton Regional Police are investigating after a person was found dead inside an abandoned building in Sydney, N.S., on Tuesday.
Const. Gary Fraser said the body was found over the noon hour inside the former train station on Dodd Street, but few details were immediately available.
He said police have only just started investigating.
"It's still in its infancy," Fraser said. "Right now our [identification] section is coming. We're holding the scene right now until they're finished with it.
"That's all. I can't even tell you if it's male or female, because we didn't go close enough to the body to determine that."

Fraser said police were waiting for specialists to arrive before starting a full investigation.
"We don't know any foul play as of this time," he said. "Once our [identification] section gets there and do what they have to do, we'll keep the scene for a while, and they do what they do and then it'll go to the [medical examiner]'s office and they'll determine the cause of death."
