The Kamloops RCMP Detachment is investigating after a deceased person was located in the water near Riverside Park this weekend.

Around 2:20 p.m. on Saturday Oct. 29, 2022, Kamloops RCMP frontline officers were called to the area of Riverside Park near the pickle ball courts, where a possible body was observed in the water about 30-40 feet from shore. The Forensic Identification Services (FIS) Unit used its drone to confirm there was a deceased person, and with the assistance of the Kamloops Fire Department, brought them to shore.

Based on the initial investigation, the person appears to have been in the water for some time, said Corporal Crystal Evelyn, Kamloops RCMP spokesperson. Police are working on confirming a suspected identification and contacting next of kin.

The Kamloops RCMP Detachment and the BC Coroners Service are conducting a concurrent investigation, which includes determining a cause of death or if criminality is suspected. In the meantime, if anyone has any information they think might be helpful to this investigation, please contact police as soon as possible.

Those with information are asked to contact the Kamloops RCMP Detachment at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2022-38930.
