The coroner's inquest into the death of a man who died while in custody in Penticton has been postponed.
The inquest for Steven Joseph Scott was supposed to be held from Feb. 17 to 21 at the Penticton Courthouse.
But according to Barb McLintock, spokesperson for the BC Coroners Service, it was not ready to be held yet and they are seeking a new date.
Scott, 30, of no fixed address, died on Aug. 10, 2012, while in custody in the RCMP cells in Penticton.
The Coroners Act makes an inquest mandatory in almost all cases in which a person dies while in police custody.
