Southeast District Major Crime Unit, Kelowna Regional Detachment, and BC RCMP Major Crime Section, RCMP have arrested a Kelowna man.

25 year-old Wyne Zablan has been charged for 1st Degree Murder, and will remain in custody until his next court appearance on August 29, 2022.

Police were originally called to the discovery of a body in the water at the West end of the Bennett Bridge on July 29th shortly after 1:00 p.m.

Police have now positively identified the victim and will not be releasing his name pending notification of his next of kin said Inspector Brent Novakoski, Southeast District Senior Investigating Officer of the BC RCMP Major Crime Section. It is evident that Mr. Zablan and the victim knew each other and we feel that there is no risk to the public
