POLICE – Body found at Mission Flats after call about suspicious fire

Yesterday afternoon (Oct. 1, 2021), Kamloops Fire & Rescue located a body after responding to a suspicious fire off Mission Flats Road, along the shoreline near the entrance to the City of Kamloops landfill.

The Kamloops Serious Crime Unit has been called in to conduct the investigation into the suspicious death.  Investigators are seeking the public’s assistance to determine what happened.  At this time, the body has not been identified.

“Early tips from the public are often critical to solving cases of this nature”, said Corp. Dave Marshall of the Kamloops Serious Crime Unit.

“We are requesting anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the area along Mission Flats Road and the Thompson River shoreline to come forward to police.  We are also looking to speak with anyone who was driving in the area and anyone that was out walking on either side of the river”.

Police are also seeking anyone with video surveillance, cell phone or dash cam video that may have captured something suspicious in the Mission Flats area to come forward.  Contact the Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 with any information that may assist investigators.
