Body discovered in van at Abbotsford McDonald’s restaurant

Death does not appear to be suspicious, police say

Police are investigating after a man was found dead in a van in the parking lot of an Abbotsford McDonald’s restaurant on Tuesday afternoon.

Sgt. Judy Bird said the Abbotsford Police Department was notified at about 1:30 p.m. of the discovery in the north end of the parking lot at the McDonald’s on Bourquin Crescent West and South Fraser Way.

Bird said it is not yet known how the man died. The BC Coroners Service was on scene, and Bird said it appears that the death is not suspicious.

That area of the parking lot is currently blocked off with police tape, but the restaurant and drive-thru remain open to customers.

More details will be released as they become available.
