Man’s body found near Fort Nelson

Hyundai Sonata had been rented from a Surrey car rental business on Sept. 30

RCMP are looking into the suspicious death of a Surrey man whose body was found in a rental car near Fort Nelson on the weekend.

On Saturday, Mounties found the body in a Hyundai sedan, about 24 kilometres south of Fort Nelson in a recreational pullout site.

It is unclear how long the body was in the car before being discovered.

The vehicle had been rented from Surrey on Sept. 30, according to Sgt. Rob Vermuelen.

Police are not ruling out foul play in the man’s death.

They’re asking anyone who observed a 2013 grey Hyundai Sonata, licence plate 180 LMW, between Monday, Sept. 30 and Saturday, Oct. 5 to contact them.

Police have yet to confirm the man’s identity and an investigation is ongoing.
