A body was discovered early Monday morning on Taylor Beach in Metchosin.
According to West Shore RCMP Const. Matthew Baker, the local detachment and B.C. Coroners Service are investigating.
“The investigation is in its infancy … [but] no foul play is suspected,” Baker said, adding more information would likely be available Tuesday.
The B.C. Coroners Service has confirmed they are also in the very early stages of an investigation but could not provide any more information specific to the case.
