A Pelly Crossing man was found dead Monday afternoon near a walking trail in Whitehorse.
Yukon RCMP have identified the man as 33-year-old Robin Sam.
Police say Sam’s body was found lying in the snow near the pedestrian trail on Two Mile Hill.
Two people noticed him while on the trail and called police.
Officers and the coroner attended the scene and found Sam dead, police said.
Coroner Kirsten Macdonald said it is too soon to determine what killed the man.
His body has been sent Outside for an autopsy.
Macdonald said there are no signs of foul play or any obvious injuries.
As for whether or not exposure to the cold was a factor in Sam’s death, the coroner could not say.
“It was very cold and there’s always risks, but it’s too early to say,” she said.
According to Environment Canada, the temperatures in Whitehorse on Monday dipped down to -27 Celsius. Sunday’s coldest temperature was -25.
