Two bodies discovered in remote area near Penticton

Two "suspicious" individuals were spotted moving on foot in the area

Two bodies were found along the Naramata Creek Forest Service Road by a couple who were walking in the area around 10 a.m. on Monday

The RCMP says its major crime unit has been deployed to the South Okanagan to investigate the discovery of two bodies in a remote location near Penticton.

The bodies were found along the Naramata Creek Forest Service Road by a couple who were walking in the area around 10 a.m. on Monday

Penticton RCMP Supt. Brian Hunter says early findings of the investigation suggest the two were victims of a “targeted incident.”

“At this time there is nothing to indicate a greater general risk to public safety,” said Hunter

The names of the victims, along with the cause of their deaths, have not been released.

Additional officers were brought into the area on Monday to search for two “suspicious” individuals who were spotted moving on foot in the area.

“Uncertain if the two individuals were connected to the unfolding death investigations, or other criminal activity in the small community, a ground search was coordinated with aerial support from RCMP Air Services. After an exhaustive search, the two individuals were not located,” the RCMP said in a release.

The B.C. Coroners Service is also investigating.
