Man's body found in New Westminster early Wednesday

Police say a man's body was found on South Dyke Road and Jardine Street in New Westminster Wednesday around 4 a.m.

Sgt. Bruce Carrie told the NewsLeader at 11 a.m. that a citizen called police after finding the body on the roadway and major crime investigators are still working to determine the cause of death.

Carrie said the coroner was called to the scene and has left but the road continues to be closed off at Jardine Street pending thorough investigation.

"At this point it's very much an active investigation, very early in the investigation. So no determinations have been made as of yet," Carrie said.

Police would not release the name or age of the man, nor say whether he is known to police.

Witnesses who might have been in the area in the early morning and have any information are urged to call police.
