RCMP Major Crime Unit investigating suspected homicide in Lillooet, BC.

On the evening of March 15, 2022 Lillooet RCMP were advised of a man down in the 600 block of Main St, Lillooet.

Statlimx Tribal Police along with Lillooet RCMP officers attended the location and found the man suffering from serious injuries already being treated by BC Ambulance. The man was transported to Lillooet hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.

The victim’s next of kin have been notified, however his name is not being released at this time.

So far this investigation leads us to believe this was an isolated incident with no elevated risk to the public. The RCMP would like to extend their thoughts to the victim’s family, and friends, stated Constable Andrew Hodges of the Lillooet RCMP.

This file is now being investigated as a homicide, and “E” Division RCMP MCU has taken conduct of the investigation. They will remain in the area gathering evidence over the upcoming days.

Anyone with information who has not already spoken to police is asked to contact the Lillooet RCMP at 250-256-4244.
