February drowning deemed accidental

Investigators from the Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit have concluded there was nothing suspicious in the drowning death of a 50 year-old Saanich man pulled from the Gorge waterway on Feb.26.

 

“This was a difficult investigation from the outset” said Saanich Police Sgt. Steve Eassie. “The biggest questions that day, and in the days following, were who was with the victim at the time of this incident, what were they doing at the time of the incident, and what did they do following the incident.”
