A 45-year-old man was found dead in the ATM vestibule at the Bank of Montreal in Quesnel Dec. 4, local RCMP have confirmed.

A media release from the Quesnel RCMP states that officers were flagged down by two citizens on the 300 block of Reid Street at around 6:40 a.m. Wednesday morning, saying they were concerned about the health of a man located inside the doors of the bank.

Officers found the man dead.

The RCMP press release says the death is not being considered suspicious.

RCMP say the Coroner’s Service is continuing its investigation into the cause of death. The man has not been identified.


The building entrance and sidewalk in front of the Bank of Montreal was cordoned off with police tape on the morning of Dec. 4.

Witnesses say they saw a police car and about three RCMP officers at the scene around 7:30 a.m. Officers were observed inside the bank.

The police tape had been removed by the time Quesnel Cariboo Observer staff arrived at the scene just after 8 a.m.

Sgt. Richard Weseen with the Quesnel RCMP told the Observer he will be providing a media update on the incident soon.

More to come.
