B.C. Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a woman who died last week on a bank of the South Thompson River.

She was Shirley Marie Thomas, 53, of Vancouver.

On the morning of Tuesday, July 12, a passerby came upon an unresponsive female on a grassy bank of the river, immediately below the back yard of a home in the 800 block of Lorne. The passerby immediately requested assistance, but Thomas was deceased at the scene.

The coroner and RCMP continue to investigate to determine the cause and manner of Thomas’s death. Foul play has been ruled out.
