Police are continuing to investigate the death of a young man in Stanley Park early this morning.

At about 4:20 a.m., police were called about a body on the seawall near Siwash Rock. Officers and paramedics arrived and the 23-year-old man was declared dead at the scene.

It is still early in the investigation, but it is believed the man was attending a rave in a secluded area in Stanley Park along Merilees Trail above Siwash Rock when he fell down the cliffs to his death. At this time the death appears to be accidental.

Investigators continue to identify and speak with potential witnesses and police will be working closely with the Coroners Service to confirm the cause of death and determine if alcohol or drugs may have played a role.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or the events leading up to it, and has not yet spoken with police, is asked to contact the VPD.
