Death in rural Abbotsford no longer deemed suspicious

Abbotsford Police no longer consider the death of a 47-year-old man, whose body was found in an outbuilding of a rural property last week, to be suspicious.

Const. Ian MacDonald said there were factors that lead investigators to believe the death was suspicious after it was discovered on Sept. 7 but a subsequent investigation suggested otherwise.

The man’s name is not being released but he was previously said to have had a “working relationship with the farm” and cause of death have not been released.

MacDonald said an autopsy and series of interviews pointed to a non-suspicious death.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team consulted on the case but did not take control at any time.
