The Southeast District Major Crime Unit is asking for information after a body was discovered on the side of the road on Penticton Indian Band land. 

On October 13, 2021, at 4:48 p.m. the Penticton RCMP received a report that a deceased man was found on the side of Green Mountain Road approximately 5 kilometers west of Penticton, BC.
