It’s been quite a year in Kelowna so far for the RCMP, from prolific offenders to boat burnings and more.
But there are things that happened that remain unresolved and with so much going on, it’s easy to forget what happened.
Here is an update on some incidents that occurred this year that remain unresolved:
In early January, Austyn Godfrey was found dead in the North Glenmore Dog Park.
The RCMP are still investigating the case, but have not identified it as a murder. This is what is currently called a “suspicious death”.
The British Columbia Coroners Service performed an autopsy, but the results have not been released.
Shooting at a gas station
A shooting which took place on Tuesday August 2 at the Shell service station in the 1800 block of KLO Road is still under investigation.
At approximately 10 p.m. that evening, a Lower Mainland man well known to police and linked to criminal organizations was shot dead and taken to Kelowna General Hospital by an unknown associate. After being dropped off, the driver left on foot, leaving the car at the hospital.
The next day, the Lower Mainland man’s family made the decision to take him off life support.
Death outside Kelowna nightclub
A man died following an incident outside the Liquid Zoo in Kelowna around 11 p.m. on Friday August 12.
At the scene, a man was found lying on the ground while another man was seen running away. The man found on the ground, named Nicholas Epp, was transported by emergency services to Kelowna General Hospital where he died a short time later.
The RCMP is continuing to investigate this incident.
If anyone in the public has information, they should contact the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300 or anonymously through Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-4477.
