No foul play at music festival

Foul play has been ruled out in the death of a Regina man at a music festival north of Vancouver.

Staff Sgt. Jennifer Pound of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says evidence found at the scene, witness statements and the results of an autopsy have determined that foul play was not a contributing factor in the 21-year-old man's death.

Nick Phongsavath was found dead in a tent on festival grounds last Friday, and police described the incident in Pemberton as suspicious.

Police did not immediately release any other details about Phongsavath's death.

His family released a statement through IHIT, saying they're grateful to police and representatives of the Pemberton Music Festival for supporting them.

Phongsavath was nearing the completion of a bachelor's degree in system software engineering at the University of Regina.
