CORNWALL – A city police spokesman says they don’t know whether there is any criminal element to a trail of blood found near the waterfront bike path.

The blood was found over the weekend in the area of Marlborough Street South and Race Street.

Cornwall police Const. Dan Cloutier said the forensics team and their criminal investigations unit was brought it to examine the scene.

When asked whether anyone had shown up to the hospital with injuries, Cloutier suggested that all investigative measures have been taken but investigators don’t have any leads.
