WEST KELOWNA - A body was found last night down an embankment near the intersection of Campbell Place and Campbell Road in West Kelowna.

Police and the B.C. Coroners Service are investigating the discovery the body found last night, Aug. 2, according to an RCMP media release. Emergency crews responded to a call at about 8:17 p.m.

A member of the public saw the body lying approximately 200 meters down the embankment.

“This investigation remains in its early stages, as the police work together with the B.C. Coroners Service in an effort to positively identify the remains,” RCMP Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey says in the release. “Although early indicators suggest that criminality was not involved in the person’s death, a final determination has not yet been made with respect to criminality at this time.”
