Sad to report.
Police are awaiting an autopsy before determining the cause of death of Abbott, who went missing two weeks ago, Detective Constable Neil Thornton said in a telephone interview Monday. His body was found around 6:40 a.m. floating face down just east of a water filtration plant, close to Queen Street East and Courcelette Road, according to earlier police reports.
The Toronto Sun previously reported that Abbott was last seen on April 25, not far from where he lived.
'He was out with friends on the Saturday night but he went home fairly early, around 10:30 p.m.', Bonfanti said. 'Then on the Sunday nobody could get in touch with him'.
