RCMP are investigating the sudden death of a 69-year-old man in the Central Interior as a homicide.

Officers from the 100 Mile House RCMP detachment were called to a home in the Sheridan Lake area on Friday, Aug. 6, for the sudden death of the 69-year-old man, according to an RCMP media release.

The officers had concerns about the death and called in the BC RCMP North District Major Crime Unit.

There is also a fact-finding investigation underway by the BC Coroners Service into the man's unexpected death.

The identity of the deceased will not be released to the public.
