UPDATE: Police say cause of death for body recovered from Fraser River not suspicious

The body was found in the 8200-block of River Road in Delta on July 26

Delta police have deemed the death of a man whose body was recovered from the Fraser River yesterday as not suspicious.

According to a DPD press release, the body was found the morning of July 26 near Bridgeview Marine in the 8200-block of River Road, between North Delta and Tilbury industrial area. The body was spotted by an individual who works in the area and reported to police.

“At this point our priority is to identify the man, and then ensure next of kin notifications are completed,” DPD public affairs coordinator Cris Leykauf said in a July 26 press release. “Our officers are reaching out to neighbouring police forces regarding any missing person reports, or other relevant information.”

Police have subsequently identified the deceased and notified his family, but will not be releasing his name, saying the file is now with the BC Coroner’s Service.
