The BC Coroners Service is investigating after a man was found dead inside an RV near Strathcona Park on Thursday.

According to VPD Const. Tania Visintin, officers were called to the scene just after 6 am by fire and paramedic crews, who had initially discovered the man.

“Paramedics attempted to revive the man, but all attempts failed,” Visintin told Daily Hive. “The man was pronounced dead on scene.”

She added that at this point, the death is not deemed suspicious.

“BC Coroners Service attended the scene and will be investigating the cause,” she said.

This past weekend, another man was found dead at the homeless encampment inside the park.

Visintin said the cause of death in that case was not yet known but that police were investigating.
