Body discovered in van at Abbotsford McDonald’s restaurant

Death does not appear to be suspicious, police say

Police investigated after a 32-year-old man was found dead in a van in the parking lot of an Abbotsford McDonald’s restaurant on Tuesday afternoon.

Sgt. Judy Bird said the Abbotsford Police Department was notified at about 1:30 p.m. of the discovery in the north end of the parking lot at the McDonald’s on Bourquin Crescent West and South Fraser Way.

Bird said it is not yet known how the man, an Abbotsford resident, died. The BC Coroners Service was on scene, and Bird said it appears that the death is not suspicious, but it will take some time for the autopsy to be complete.

That area of the parking lot was blocked off with police tape, but the restaurant and drive-thru remained open to customers.

More details will be released as they become available.
