ABBOTSFORD, B.C. -- Police have identified a man whose body was found on a road in Abbotsford, B.C., as they try to determine the cause of what appears to be a suspicious death.
Sgt. Judy Bird of the Abbotsford Police Department says the 55-year-old was a resident of the Fraser Valley community.
She says initial indications suggest the death is not linked to recent gang conflict in the Lower Mainland.
Police responded to a report of a body discovered last Saturday around 6 a.m., and said in a release then that the incident was being investigated as a hit and run of a pedestrian.
The B.C. Coroners Service is conducting a parallel investigation about when the man could have died.
