POLICE are awaiting autopsy results for a missing man found dead earlier this week and have named the man whose body was found last week in Gitaus.

Autopsy results are expected to confirm the cause of death of 21-year-old Devin Charles Azak-Davis, reported Terrace RCMP in a release this morning.

Police do not suspect foul play, nor do they now believe Azak-Davis’s death was directly related to the death of a man found in a Gitaus residence, said police.

The identity of that man has been confirmed by police as 25-year-old Troy Robert Mason, a resident of the home.

Results of an autopsy performed in Vancouver yesterday are not expected for several weeks and police are treating the death as suspicious and are continuing their investigation, the release continued.

RCMP say they are following up all leads and have been frustrated by the amount of misinformation circulating through social media.
