VERNON - Police investigated a sudden death in Vernon today, but have now turned the case over to the B.C. Coroners Service.

The investigation focused around a residence in the 4000-block of 29 Street this morning after police were called to assist the B.C. Ambulance Service.

The B.C. Coroners Service was soon brought on to join the investigation into what is being called a sudden death.

Police had the scene taped off for much of today, May 16, however RCMP Sgt. Mike Moyer confirms their side of the investigation is now complete.

“It was deemed not suspicious,” Moyer says.

He adds there is no danger to the public. The case has been turned over to the coroner.

The individual’s age and identity have not been released.
