Another body found in Gitaus Village

The body of another 20-something-year-old man was found this weekend. Police say the death is suspicious.

Police are currently examining the scene where a body was found Sunday in Gitaus Village, and also waiting today for autopsy results for a body found in the same area Thursday of last week.

A body was found on Sunday and at this point the police are investigating it as a suspicious death,” said Terrace RCMP Const. Angela Rabut, adding that the body hasn’t been identified but is a 20-something-year-old male.

Police said the victim was found buried in snow by a couple while they were snowshoeing, after being alerted by their dog.

It was on the trail leading down to the old Kitselas reserve,” said Rabut. “The trail is normally maintained but because it was a holiday it wasn’t and that’s why the body was covered in snow.”

Terrace RCMP are now conducting a thorough examination of the scene.

Meanwhile, autopsy results on the body of a twenty-something male found in Gitaus last Thursday could be reported to Terrace RCMP as early as within the hour.

The autopsy is happening today in Vancouver.

The body found Thursday has also been deemed a suspicious death, although police have yet to confirm any details about what happened.

Neither bodies have been linked yet to missing 21-year-old Devin Charles Azak-Davis, who was last seen New Year’s Day around 3 a.m. in Gitaus, 20 km east of Terrace.

For the past three days, RCMP and Ground Search & Rescue teams have been scouring the area looking for him.

He was reported missing to police last Wednesday afternoon and has not been seen since New Years.
