Police have ruled out homicide as the cause of a death that was reported as suspicious on Saturday morning.

Abbotsford Police received a call just before 9:30 a.m. Saturday that a deceased male had been found in a suite at a residence in the 2200 block of Beaver Street.

Major crime unit detectives and forensic identification unit officers then attended the scene to gather evidence and conduct interviews. The Integrated Homicide investigation Unit was brought in, but the death was soon determined to be a suicide.
