PENTICTON — Autopsy results show no signs of suspicious death of Edmonton man found floating in the Okanagan River last week.
Police originally suspected the death of Andrew Scott Gangl to be suspicious and asked the public to come forward with any information while they waited on an autopsy, scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.
Gangl, a 24-year-old from Edmonton, was last seen walking near Okanagan Falls Elementary School the evening before his body was found, according to Const. Kris Clark.
Police are investigating Gangl’s whereabouts and activity on Thursday, April 24 and encourage anyone to come forward with information. Police are also asking anyone who was in the Okanagan River area on Thursday evening or Friday morning to speak to police if they have any information.
