The investigation into how, where and when a Kelowna man died by the creek area near KLO and Spiers Roads has been launched.

The body of a man in his 70s was found April 25, just after 7 a.m. and investigators with both the RCMP and the B.C. Coroners Service attended to examine the scene.

"At this time, criminality is not suspected in the man's death," RCMP Cpl. Jocelyn Noseworthy, media relations officer for the Kelowna Regional Detachment, said in a press release.

The deceased has been identified as a Kelowna man in his 70s.

The B.C. Coroners Service is also investigating to determine how, where, when and by what means he came to his death. Noseworthy said due to the privacy of the deceased, neither organization will be releasing or confirming identity. No other information is available at this time.
