No Foul Play Suspected In Death of Cape Breton Soldier
Police in Owen Sound, Ontario say foul play is not suspected in the death of 19 year-old Andrew Fitzgerald from Cape North.
Fitzgerald hadn’t been seen since early last Saturday morning, and his body was discovered late yesterday afternoon near the water treatment facility on the east shore of Owen Sound harbour.
An autopsy is being done by the medical examiner in London, Ontario.
Fitzgerald was out celebrating his graduation from a military training centre when he disappeared.
At a press conference this afternoon, the commanding officer of the 4th Canadian Division Training Centre, Lieutenant-Colonel Christian Lillington, said Fitzgerald’s family and military colleagues very much appreciate the support offered by police and residents in Owen Sound during the investigation.
The search effort involved Owen Sound Police, the Ontario Provincial Police, and the Canadian Armed Forces.
Owen Sound Police Chief Bill Sornberger said this afternoon that investigators were still conducting interviews in the case.
