Kelowna RCMP say criminality is not suspected in the death of a man whose body was found in a parking lot in Kelowna’s north-end industrial area on Monday.
Mounties were called to assist paramedics with a report of a body located in the 1,000-block of Weddell Place just before 7 a.m.
The RCMP and BC Coroners Service both attended the scene to investigate.
Neither organization will confirm the identity of the man.
Kelowna RCMP have cordoned off the parking lot at Sun-Rype (1030 Weddell Place) as they investigate a body found in the area.
Currently, police have a black tarp covering the body from public view. Officers are investigating the parking lot area, as well as inside the building.
