A major police deployment was underway Friday in Nicolet, in Centre-du-Québec, after the discovery of a body on the grounds of a residence.

The discovery was made during the night on rue Monseigneur-Courchesne.

Two people have been arrested in connection with this case, confirmed the Sûreté du Québec. They are scheduled to appear Thursday afternoon, but the charges they face are still not known.

The identity of the victim has not been released, but an autopsy will be performed to understand the circumstances surrounding his death.

Authorities called the case “very strange.”
