Body recovered from lake

A body has been recovered from Lillooet Lake, police say.

Monday afternoon, Pemberton RCMP received a report of a body found floating in the 25-kilometre lake, which is surrounded by Garibaldi Provincial Park to the west and the Lillooet Range to the east.

Police attended, alongside the BC Coroners Service, and recovered the body.

The matter remains under investigation.

The BC Coroners Service confirmed unidentified human remains were recovered from the lake, but would not provide any additional details at this early stage of the investigation.

In a follow-up phone call on Tuesday, Sgt. Rob Knapton with the Whistler RCMP said “We can’t really talk about whether [the death] was suspicious or not until we have a better idea of what happened.”

No further details on the death will be released at this point, police said.
