B.C. Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a young man whose body was discovered in Peterson Creek Park but has yet to determine cause of death.
The body was that of Kelly Ernest Brewer, 26, of Merritt.
A jogger in the park came upon Brewer on the bank of the creek on Wednesday, July 6. The jogger immediately notified authorities, but the man was declared dead at the scene.
The coroners service and RCMP continue to investigate to determine the cause and manner of Brewer’s death. Foul play has been ruled out, however.
Brewer’s family has been notified of his death.
