In this Guardian file photo, police teams work at a wooded site in Stratford where there the body of a man was found in May.

Police say they are still not able to confirm the identity of a body found just off the Keppoch Road in May.

Sgt. Leanne Butler of the RCMP said late last week they are hoping the victim’s DNA will help reveal just who this person was.

But DNA testing takes time, she stressed.

“On television, DNA testing takes an hour,” Butler said. “In real life, it takes a lot longer than that.”

The body was discovered in a wooded area and appeared to have been there for some time.

Police were not able to connect the body with any missing persons at that time.

An autopsy was conducted in Halifax.
