Police need help tracking vehicle movements in sudden death investigation

The pickup truck police are investigating may look common but note the matching canopy.

KELOWNA - Police investigating the discovery of a body inside a vehicle on Myra Canyon Forest Service Road earlier this month could use a little help.

While Kelowna RCMP has yet to call the 54-year-old man's death a homicide, they are still trying to piece together what happened. In a release issued today, March 30, the Serious Crime Unit issued a plea for anyone who has seen this full size, Ford 4-door crew cab, 4X4 pickup truck with a matching canopy and chrome grill in that area. 

“Serious Crime Unit investigators are asking the public for any and all information related to sightings, on Thursday March 22, of a dark grey or charcoal colored Ford F-150 XLT pickup truck in the area of the Myra Canyon Forest Service Road near McCulloch Road, anytime between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.,” RCMP Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey says. 

No further information was released.

There are lots of Ford F-150s out there and in this colour. This photo shows the chrome grill at the front of the truck.
