“At this time there is no evidence to suggest that criminality was involved in Mr. White’s sudden death,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, spokesperson for the BC RCMP Southeast District. “We extend our deepest condolences to Lewis’ family during this difficult time.”

Since July 26, authorities had been working alongside Creston Search and Rescue to locate White. The BC Coroners Service is now investigating to determine how, where, when and by what means White came to his death.
