The Columbia Valley RCMP and B.C. Coroners Service are currently investigating the death of 30 year-old Cory Jarock in Invermere. RCMP are treating the death as suspicious and are in the process of interviewing a potential suspect.
On Tuesday April 3, 2012 at around 1:30 p.m., the Columbia Valley Detachment were advised by B.C. Ambulance Services that a male was found deceased in the driveway of a private residence in the 1100 block of 5th Ave, Invermere. The Coroner’s office was contacted and is assisting in the investigation to determine the cause of death of Jarock, who was a resident of Invermere. At this time, Columbia Valley RCMP Staff Sgt. Marko Shehovac says there is a known “semi-cause” of death, however the case has been forwarded to the Kelowna Major Crime Unit who will be responsible for releasing further information.
The police investigation determined that the deceased had been evicted from a party the previous evening, and was found by the residents of the property the next morning in the driveway of the property.
The police are continuing their investigation into the death and are actively seeking to speak to all persons at the party to determine the circumstances surrounding the death of Jarock.
