Shortly after 2 p.m., April 6, Quesnel RCMP were called to a residence in the 400 block of Baker Drive after a teenage male was discovered unresponsive inside the residence. The 15-year-old male was pronounced dead on scene. Preliminary investigation conducted by Quesnel RCMP’s G.I.S. investigators and the Coroner suggests that drugs may have been a factor in this death. Foul play is not suspected. An autopsy will be conducted later next week to confirm the cause of death.
The name of the deceased will not be released at this time, in order to allow the grieving family to make notifications to all relatives.
Quesnel RCMP are working with the community to ensure that Victim Services are available to anyone in need of grief counselling support.
Investigation into this death continues. Anyone with any information regarding this investigation is asked to call the Quesnel RCMP at 250-992-9211.
