Body found in wooded area of Exeter not suspicious, no foul play: Huron County OPP

According to OPP, a missing person investigation began on Sept. 23 after family members reported the 23-year-old as missing.

On Oct. 21, Huron County OPP responded to a wooded area just south of Thames Road West after someone reportedly found a person lying underneath an all-terrain vehicle. Two days later, on Oct. 23, police confirmed that foul play had been ruled out and that an autopsy had been completed.

More than a month after the body was discovered and more than two months after Smith was first reported missing, OPP confirmed the identity.

Police also announced on Dec. 2 that the investigation determined the death was the result of injuries sustained in an ATV rollover crash.
