The Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit (VIIMCU) is currently investigating a homicide in Bowser, B.C.
On August 31st 2021 just after 4 a.m. Oceanside RCMP was contacted to assist BC Ambulance after it was reported that there was an injured person in the 5000 block of Thompson Clark Drive West in Bowser B.C.
Upon arrival, members located a person suffering from serious injuries already being treated by both BC Ambulance and the Fire Department. Sadly this individual later succumbed to their injuries says Sergeant Chris Manseau, Division Media Relations Officer for the BC RCMP.
VIIMCU has been notified and is now investigating. While we are still in the preliminary stages of the investigation, police believe this was an isolated incident, one a person is in custody and there is no on-going risk to the general public.
The BC Coroners Service is also conducting a concurrent fact-finding investigation into this unexpected death. Due to the privacy of the deceased, their name will not be released at this time.
Anyone with information is asked to call the VIIMCU information line at 250-380-6211.
