A 52-year-old Trail man has died downtown, possibly due to drugs.
RCMP say emergency services were called Saturday afternoon to the 1600 block of Bay Avenue. A police officer who arrived first found the man dead.
The officer talked to a witness who believed the man had used street drugs. The cause of death has not been determined, but foul play is not suspected.
Trail RCMP have turned the investigation over to the BC Coroner Service.
“Trail RCMP continue to express its concerns about the loss of life on the streets to due to the current toxic drug supply,” Sgt. Mike Wicentowich said in a news release.
