The body of a 65 year old London, ON man was discovered earlier this morning June
3, 2014 along the shore of Lake Erie just west of Little Beach, Port Stanley, ON.
A local resident out for a walk discovered the body lying on the rocky shore around
10:37am and immediately contacted police.
Police investigation indicated that the male had been fishing from the shoreline
at that location at the time of his death. Police located fishing equipment and
other personal effects nearby as well as the victim's vehicle was found parked in
a nearby lot. The victim was last seen by family at approximately 2:00 p.m. on June
Police do not suspect foul play and the investigation indicated that the body had
not been in the water nor had it washed up on shore from another location.
Police have identified the deceased as Antonio ROMAO, age 65 from London. A post
mortem examination is scheduled for Wednesday June 4, 2014 at University Hospital
in London to determine a cause of death.
Police can confirm that his incident is not related to last week's search for a
possible missing person off the west break wall in Port Stanley.
