Peel police are probing a “suspicious” death following the discovery of a body in Mississauga.

“At this stage, our criminal investigation bureau is investigating,” said Const. Bancroft Wright.

The discovery was made at 8:15 a.m. near Sheridan Park and Homelands drives in the city’s south end, in the Dundas St. and Erin Mills Pkwy. area.

The victim is male.

A forensics team will be heading out to the scene.

Sheridan Park Dr. is closed as of 9:45 a.m.

UPDATE: This death is no longer being treated as suspicious, said Wright, adding the scene is being released.

A post-mortem examination – to be held later this week – will determine cause of death.

The man is 27, of Mississauga.
