SOUTH DUNDAS — The SD&G OPP responded to a sudden death in the vicinity of the Two Creek Conservation Area yesterday, OPP East Region Acting Sergeant Tina Hunt confirmed for Nation Valley News this evening.
Foul play is not suspected, Hunt reported in a short reply to the emailed inquiry. She provided no further details.
“We will not be releasing the name of the deceased,” she added in response to this follow-up question: “Did the OPP lose a member yesterday?”
Between nine and 12 police cruisers were spotted along County Rd. 2 Saturday afternoon, Aug. 11, immediately west of the Conservation Area near Iroquois.
The large police presence was spotted as early as 1 p.m. and continued until 8 p.m., according to a reader. Residents reported seeing OPP officers on ATVs and using an overhead drone.
The parking lot leading into the South Nation Conservation-administered recreation area was closed for the duration but has since reopened to the public.
