Maple Ridge's most notorious housing complex might be connected to a gruesome discovery Friday night.
Ridge Meadows RCMP and the B.C. Coroner's office are investigating the sudden death of a 27-year-old Mission man.
Police, and members of the B.C. Ambulance Service, were called to a residence in the 11600 block of Fraser Street at approximately 7 p.m. Friday November 20, where they found the lifeless body of a Mission man. The coroner attended to the scene, and arranged for the man's body to be taken to hospital, and an autopsy has been ordered.
Foul play is not suspected. Police confirm that the man had been shot in the foot, but it is not felt the wound caused his death, and that he died from other causes, which will be determined through the autopsy. Investigation into the death, and the gunshot wound, is continuing.
