The RCMP and B.C. Coroners Service have both launched investigations following the discovery of a body near a highway pullout near Dease Lake in northwestern B.C. on Friday.

Dease Lake RCMP were responding to a pickup truck fire, with no one in the vehicle, along Highway 37 south of the Stikine River Bridge when a passing motorist advised the officers that he had spotted what he believed to be a body at a nearby Highway pullout.

Police investigated and located the body of a deceased male.

B.C. RCMP spokesman Chris Manseau said it was unclear if the man’s death was related to the vehicle fire.

The man’s name and cause of death have not been released.

Dease Lake RCMP is asking for any witnesses who were in the area who may have dashcam footage to come forward. Anyone with information can contact Dease Lake RCMP 250-771-4111, North District Major Crimes at 250-613-6744 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Traffic was blocked for hours in the westbound lanes as crews cleared the scene.
