Clearwater RCMP were called to the park around 7:45 p.m. on Wednesday, to reports a woman had fallen over the edge at Spahats Creek Falls, a popular tourist destination just north of Clearwater.

Police and the BC Coroners Service are investigating “all circumstances surrounding the incident,” according to a media release, but investigators do not suspect foul play in the woman’s death.

RCMP officers retrieved the woman’s body Thursday with help from the Clearwater, Kamloops and 100 Mile search-and-rescue teams, BC Park Rangers and Yellowhead Helicopters.
