Peel Regional Police are treating the discovery of a body in the parking lot outside a central Mississauga commercial plaza this afternoon as “suspicious.”

Police say the coroner is on the scene at the commercial building on Mavis Rd. at Hillcrest Ave., just north of Dundas St. W., where the body was discovered at around noon.

While police tweeted the body is that of a female, reports from the scene suggest the deceased could be male.

By describing the discovery as “suspicious,” police believe the death may not be due to natural causes.

More information to come.

Update: Police say the body discovered is that of a young woman. Investigators are still on the scene looking for more information.

“The death is being treated as suspicious,” police said late this afternoon via Twitter.
