Langley RCMP Serious Crime is handling the investigation, said Cpl. Holly Largy. Foul play is not suspected.

“The investigation thus far suggests the presence of a homeless camp in the area of the fire and drug paraphernalia was found near the body,” said Largy.

A forensic specialist with what appeared to be a metal detector could be observed suiting up in the area of a temporary shelter set up near a greenhouse.

An autopsy has been tentatively scheduled for Wednesday.

If anyone has information that might assist with this investigation, they are asked to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
