KELOWNA – RCMP are investigating a death in Kelowna over the weekend they’ve deemed suspicious.

Police officers responded to an abandoned 911 call at 3 a.m. Saturday, June 24, placed from the 1900 block of Pacific Court in Kelowna, Cpl. Jesse O'Donaghey says.

The officers searched the area and found the body of a 48-year old West Kelowna man along with the phone used to make the 911 call from the parking lot of an apartment building.
