The body of a 26-year-old Kelowna man was located early Thursday morning in Heritage Park near Ethel Street at Lawrence Avenue, prompting Mounties to express their intent to advocate for health supports.
“The Kelowna RCMP express our condolences to those who are closest to this young man. It’s a tragedy to lose a young person in our community,” said Const. Mike Della-Paolera.
“We continue to advocate for the need for increased health and support services in our community.”
There is no further police investigation or concerns for the safety of others.
The BC Coroners Service have taken over the investigation as a Coroners Act investigation. The man’s identification was confirmed and officers have notified the deceased man’s family.
“If anyone was in the area prior to 7:30 a.m and may have information to assist, please contact the BC Coroners Service,” RCMP said in a media release.
