Body reported found in porta potty of Vernon park

Witness said body was found in Lakeview's bathroom
A witness reports seeing a body pulled from the portable washroom at Lakeview Park Tuesday, June 25.

An unfortunate discovery was made at Vernon's refurbished Lakeview Park Tuesday morning.

Vernon North Okanagan RCMP were on scene at the 18th Street park, where a witness said a body was found in the porta potty.

Visiting from out of town, the woman and her family, including two young children, went to visit the park, hopeful the new pool would be open.

Not only were they disappointed to find the pool was still closed, but they watched a body being loaded into a vehicle.

"It's great to be back home," joked the former resident, dismayed at what has become of her hometown.

The Morning Star has reached out to RCMP for further information.
