Homicide investigation launched after body found in creek near Big White

A dead body was discovered in a creek near Big White this weekend.

The Kelowna RCMP said officers were called to the 201 Forest Service Road, north of the ski resort, on Saturday afternoon.

Upon arrival, they confirmed there was a body in the creek and the RCMP is now working with the BC Coroners Service to identify the victim.

“We can confirm it is being investigated as a homicide,” explained Cpl. James Grandy.

The Southeast District RCMP’s Major Crime Unit (SDMCU) unit is leading the investigation, which Grandy says “is in its preliminary stages.”

At this time, he noted, there is “no identified risk to the public.”

Investigators are urging anyone who may have been on the 201 Forest Service Road over the past two weeks, and observed something suspicious, to call the SDMCU at 1-877-987-8477.
