Police are still actively investigating the death of a 29-year-old woman who was found floating in Okanagan Lake. 

Caitlin Midori Bradley, 29, was found floating face down in the lake at Boyce-Gyro Beach Park by a young boy on Sunday. 

Kelowna RCMP and the BC Coroners Service have been trying to piece together Bradley's whereabouts and movements before her death. 

“The investigation into the circumstances surrounding the sudden death of Caitlin Bradley remains very active and ongoing at this time,” Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey said Wednesday.

Investigators are now focusing on her whereabouts, movements, and communication between 7 a.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. 

“Any dash camera footage in the Gyro Beach area along Lakeshore Road between the same time period would also be greatly appreciated,” said O’Donaghey. 

Bradley, who went by the stage alias Megan Gunns, worked as a dancer in the Lower Mainland at The Haney Public House and in Kelowna at Liquid Zoo and Cheetahs Show Lounge.

Police say Bradley was from Surrey, but friends and social media indicate she lived in Kelowna. 

“She was dependable, professional, responsible and always handling herself with the utmost respect,” said Haney Public House owner Yvan Charette.
Friends of Bradley tell Castanet she was an amazing mother, a great friend and her death has devastated the dancer community. 

“She will be missed by many on different levels,” said Charette. “This is a shocking and sad time for us at the Haney Hotel, and her loss is a waste of a life not fully lived for many more years to come.”

Bradley’s death has still not officially been classified by police. 

Another woman was found dead in Okanagan Lake just a few weeks earlier, but police say the two events are not connected. Both of the sudden deaths are being investigated by RCMP and the Coroners Service. But, O’Donaghey says there is nothing at this time to indicate the public is at risk.

"It's important to remember that public safety is our priority, and the Kelowna RCMP are committed to providing any information or warnings that would prevent crime, or reduce the risks," said O'Donaghey. "That is not required as a result of these recent incidents. Kelowna is a safe community that is not defined by these two tragic losses."
Anyone with dash camera footage or information should call Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.
