Mounties probe suspicious Okanagan death

The RCMP Major Crimes Unit and the Coroners Service are investigating after a suspicious death in the Okanagan.

Police say a 61-year-old man was found lying on the ground outside a home on Highway 97 in Lake Country on Saturday.

The man was taken to hospital in Kelowna but passed away earlier today.

Cpl. Dan Moskaluk says police are releasing few other details at this point.

"Currently the incident and the death of the individual is deemed suspicious," Moskaluk said. "We're limited to the details that we can release given that we want to maintain the integrity of the current findings."

The man's name has not been released.
