Someone told me a body was found cut in half at Kirk Yard this morning. Between the east tower and Buchanan Street. He works for CN and said tower ops sent his Forman photos of the body, which was allegedly cut clean in half. Right now he says it was not an employee. Any insider information?

The body found was a CN employee. He was a signal department system system engineer.

An article on NWITimes reports that a 61 year old man died after being struck by a CN train. No indication the victim was a railroad employee.

Thank You. Not sure why that didn't come up when I searched?

Apparently his death was intentional. Very sad day for everyone at CN.
