Foul play involved in death near Boston Bar

Man found in a tent at musical festival and conference in Nahatlatch Valley

Homicide investigators were called to a campground north of Boston Bar on Sunday morning after a man in his mid-20s was found dead in a tent.

A 25-year-old Alberta resident was killed near Boston Bar over the weekend.

Homicide investigators were called to Sandy Pines Campground in Nahatlatch Valley at about 3:30 a.m. on Sunday after Bradley Dean Ross was found unresponsive in a tent at the Entheos Summer Solstice Festival and Conference.

Police said he was pronounced dead at the scene and appears to have “met with foul play.”

“The scene will take some time to process as there (were) over 1,000 people in attendance at this gathering,” said Sgt. Jennifer Pound. “Investigators will be at the scene for several days looking to identify all of the attendees and Entheos event staff.”

Investigators have not made any arrests or identified any suspects at this time.

Anyone with information regarding the homicide is asked to contact the IHIT tipline at 1-877-551-IHIT(4448) or by email at ihittipline@rcmp-grc.gc.ca
