Body Found Outside Home Of UBC President

The property is located near popular trails that connect to local beaches.


UPDATE - April 24, 2015: The B.C. Coroner's Service has confirmed the body to be Roderick Cortner, 66, of Vancouver. Officials are still investigating the cause of death, but foul play has been ruled out.

VANCOUVER - Police say a body was found on the property of the official residence of the president of the University of British Columbia.

RCMP Cpl. Brenda Winpenny of the UBC detachment says officers arrived at the campus residence of Arvind Gupta on Thursday after someone on the property called police.

She says the death is suspicious in nature but released no information yet on the victim's identity or age. She confirmed the man was not Gupta.

Winpenny says the president's property is located near trails that descend to several local beaches.

The home, in Vancouver's upscale Point Grey area, is officially known as Norman Mackenzie House, and it stands west of the Museum of Anthropology and next to Pacific Spirit Regional Park.
