A downtown Vernon corner was blocked by police tape following the discovery of a body Wednesday morning.
At approximately 9:15 a.m. Sept. 16, officers with the Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP responded to the sudden death in the 3300 block of 30th Avenue, in front of Dorian’s Greek Taverna.
A body could be seen covered by a blanket on a bench as police cordoned off the area, a witness who lives in the area told the Morning Star.
“No criminality is suspected and the BC Coroners Service is conducting an independent and concurrent fact-finding investigation to determine how, where, when and by what means they came to their unexpected death,” Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP media relations officer Const. Chris Terleski said. “Neither agency has additional information to release at this time.”
