A body was found floating in Little Wilson Lake on Tuesday, July 9. Three men camping in the area called the police around 3 p.m. that day telling them they had found a body. The remains are believed to be the body of Trail man Michael Guthrie but the identity has not yet been confirmed.
The body was transported to Vernon where an autopsy is scheduled for today, and the family of Mr Guthrie has been notified of the recovery. The initial examination of the body did not reveal any evidence of foul play, said Sgt. Darryl Little of the Kootenay Boundary RCMP in a press release. The BC Coroners service is assuming control of the investigation from this point forward.
