Vancouver: Coroners investigating suspicious in-custody deaths
allar einingar: 24 Hours Vancouver
BC Coroners will conduct two autopsies this week on the bodies of two men who died Saturday while in contact with Vancouver police. Coroner Owen Court said police responded to a noise complaint in the Granville Street area and found a 23 year old barricaded inside a residence. He added the autopsy will determine whether drugs were involved in the man’s death.
Vancouver police are saying no foul play was involved.
In a separate incident, a 28 year old in the 1400-block East Broadway area allegedly slashed or stabbed himself after police arrived at the residence in response to a call about a “distraught male.”
The RCMP’s homicide division is investigating the Broadway death. Autopsy results are expected within a few weeks.
