DAWSON CREEK -- A dead body was discovered at the Kin Park playground in Dawson Creek on Thursday afternoon.

They were found after a driver spotted a person lying on the ground.

Police arrived on scene and taped the area off.

A number of people on social media said the death was due to a drug overdose but that hasn’t been confirmed by the Dawson Creek RCMP.

Due to the active investigation, not a lot of details are being released.

However, Mounties said the death was sudden and not considered to be suspicious.

The body has been removed and the playground has reopened.
