Campbell River deaths not suspicious, police say

Police are waiting for the autopsy results for two homeless men found dead on Saturday.

The deaths are unrelated and are not believed to be suspicious, said Sgt. Craig Massey of Campbell River RCMP.

It was around 2 a.m. Saturday when pedestrians found a 57-year-old man dead in the wooded area between Nunns Creek Park and Campbell River Common mall.

Then at 2 p.m., people out for a walk in the wooded area in the 100 block of Dogwood Street found a deceased 67-year-old man.

Massey confirmed that both men were homeless and appeared to be living in the areas where they were found.

Both scenes were investigated by the major crimes and forensic units, and those investigations are now complete.

Autopsy results on both men are expected this week. The names of the deceased have not been released.
