Original Terrace RCMP release January 10th, 2012:

RCMP have now confirmed the identity of [a male found dead in a Gitaus residence] as 25-year-old Troy Robert Mason, a resident of the home.

Police say results of an autopsy performed in Vancouver yesterday are not expected for several weeks.

They are treating the death as suspicious and are continuing their investigation.
