Autopsy shows no signs of trauma on body believed to be of missing teacher

Police are waiting for further test results before the body can be positively IDed

An autopsy performed today shows that there are no signs of trauma on the body that police believe is of missing Whitby teacher Jeffrey Boucher. 

The 52-year-old went missing on January 13th after he went on a daily run. 

Someone walking a dog found a body on the shore of Lake Ontario on Saturday afternoon. A few hours later, police held a press conference saying they believe the body is of Boucher. 

Durham police spokesman Dave Selby says today's autopsy does not show a cause of death, but supports the theory that foul play is not suspected. 

Police are waiting for further test results before they can positively ID the body.
