Prince George Mounties are investigating after the body of a male was found in the bush Sunday.
Police were called to a wooded area near the Pine Centre Mall that morning after reports that a male had been assaulted near the area.
Investigators say there is no direct link to Highway 97, which runs right by the area and there are no concerns about public safety.
RCMP have not identified the body.
The Prince George Major Crime Unit and Forensic ID Section are working with the BC Coroners Service on the case.
Investigators consider the death suspicious.
