VANCOUVER - Vancouver police have a man in custody and are recommending manslaughter charges after a body was discovered in an apartment.

Police were called to an East Vancouver building Tuesday afternoon where officers found the body of a man.

Police say a few minutes after the discovery, a 29-year-old man who had been living in the same home was picked up by patrol officers a few blocks away.

The accused and the victim are know to each other and police say the homicide appears to be drug related.
