Man found dead in Maple Ridge park

B.C. Coroner’s Service investigating

The B.C. Coroner’s Service is investigating the death of a Maple Ridge man in his 20s at Haney-Nokai Park on Wednesday night.

Fire, police and ambulance converged on the area near Dunbar Street, north of Dewdney Trunk Road, at about 8 p.m. after people saw a man lying down.

Ridge Meadows RCMP Sgt. Brenda Gresiuk said police did respond to calls about an unresponsive male.

“At this point, there’s nothing that’s suspicious in relation to this male and it is a coroner’s investigation,” Gresiuk said.

The incident happened in the park, drawing lots of public attention.

“So it is a public area so that would be concerning to have an unfortunate event like this take place in one of our parks, but we do appreciate people took the time to call police,” Gresiuk said.

“We really appreciate that people are taking care of their community and calling us when they see something suspicious. That’s always what we’re asking the public to do. If you see something, say something. In this case, this is a tragic outcome.”

The coroner’s investigation should be complete by the fall.
