The body was found at a cemetery in St. John's, Newfoundland, about nine miles from a shopping center in Conception Bay South where a man and a woman were found shot dead Tuesday night, CBC News reported.
Police began a massive search for a possible suspect, with a dragnet spanning several neighborhoods and shutting down a major road for several hours.
Residents were urged to stay inside and lock their doors. Officials ordered three schools in the area to close Wednesday.
Police said they were seeking a man they described as a person of interest who they said knew both of the victims in the shopping center shooting.
The woman was found shot inside a health clinic, while the man was shot outside.
