Body of baby boy found in Fraser River
The body of an infant boy was found in the Fraser River between Richmond and Burnaby on Tuesday night.
Police say the baby was located around 10 p.m. on Oct. 11 by witnesses in the area who at first glance believed the infant to be a doll.
Police attended and confirmed the infant baby was deceased.
While the baby appears to be newborn the autopsy will ultimately be required to confirm those details as well as the race of the baby.
