Prince Rupert RCMP say they do not suspect foul play in the death of a local man.
Police and emergency crews found the body in a parking lot on Chamberlain Avenue shortly after 7:30 Wednesday morning.
Because of the location and area the body was found, the Terrace RCMP Forensic Identification Section was called in to assist.
Constable Matt Ericson says the man has been identified as a Prince Rupert resident, but his name is not being released pending notification of his family.
RCMP are asking anyone that that may have seen a man walking in the 1000 block of Chamberlain Avenue between 5 p.m. February 3rd and 7:40 a.m. February 4th to contact police.
