The coroner's findings about the recent sudden death of a local man near Berkey's Corner won't be known until early January.

Coroner Barbara McLintock said Wednesday toxicology reports are being done in the case referred by local RCMP to her office.

She expected those results by the first week of January.

The B.C. Coroners Service probe surrounds the Nov. 18 death of a man who a female visitor to the News Leader Pictorial said fell on a path near Berkey's Corner, then died after injuries to his neck.

Identity of the man, and all other details of his death, have not been released by the coroner.
