Ottawa Police say the death of a woman whose body was recovered from the Rideau River Tuesday is being treated as suspicious.
A passerby alerted police to the body located near rocks in the water shortly before 10:30 a.m., between Vincent Massey Park and Carleton University.
It's not yet known how long the body had been there.
A post mortem will be conducted.
The major crimes unit is investigating and anyone with information is asked to call Ottawa Police.
