The Merritt RCMP has confirmed that they were called to a back alley between Granite and Quilchena yesterday afternoon where a deceased male subject had been found.
Along with the RCMP the BC Coroners Service also responded to the call where they found a 54-year old Merritt Resident. The man was ‘well known to the police.’
The death is believed to be related to the use of illicit substances and the RCMP does not find the death suspicious in nature.
