Body pulled from Fraser River still not identified
Chilliwack RCMP are still trying to identify a body pulled from the Fraser River Monday morning.
"The coroner's office is investigating in order to positively identify the body, which could take some time," RCMP Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said Wednesday.
Until a positive ID is made, she said, there are few details the police could confirm.
"We're hoping the coroner will be able to provide more answers," she said.
A fishing guide spotted the body floating near the confluence of the Harrison and Fraser rivers at about 9 a.m. Monday.
The Kent Search and Rescue team was called to help recover the body, which is currently awaiting autopsy.
Police are checking missing person reports as part of their investigation.
