The circumstances surrounding the death of a 22 year-old man found beside Haisla Boulevard are not considered suspicious, say Kitimat RCMP.
Police have determined the cause of death, but are not releasing that information.
However Corporal Blain confirmed the man did die beside Haisla Blvd on January 19.
“No foul play is suspected, at this point the death is no longer considered suspicious,” he said.
RCMP are not releasing his name at this time, but the family of the deceased have been notified.
The man had told a friend he was hitchhiking to Vancouver 1:45 a.m. on the morning of Wednesday, January 19.
He was not declared missing for 16 hours after that conversation with his friend.
His body was found on Friday, January 21.
