The Yukon chief coroner has identified the man found dead in Whitehorse’s Rotary Peace Park on Dec. 21 as 60-year-old Timothy Charlie.
Charlie most recently lived in Whitehorse and was originally from Old Crow, chief coroner Heather Jones said in a press release Dec. 23.
Foul play is not suspected in his death.
The Yukon Coroner’s Service and Whitehorse RCMP were called to Rotary Peace Park just after 9 a.m. Dec. 21 after a passerby found a body in the parking lot, according to the press release.
The coroner’s investigation is ongoing and an autopsy is scheduled to take place at Vancouver General Hospital.
