Found in a rural area frequently by pedestrians.

Police are still trying to identify the person found dead Saturday in east Maple Ridge and are asking anyone who’s been in the area of 24500-block of Lougheed Highway to contact them.

“Though the area is rural, investigators believe that it does get used frequently by pedestrians so we are asking anyone who has been in that area to contact IHIT,” said Det. Lara Jansen with the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team.
