Police looking for answers in man’s death

The body of Rory McGillivray was found in the Fraser River on Dec. 18

Hope RCMP is looking for information regarding the death of Rory McGillivray.

A body found in the Fraser River last month has been identified as Rory McGillivray.

Police believe the 56-year-old man was living somewhere in the Hope area prior to his death. He was last seen by a family member in Kamloops on Sept. 18.

“Right now, we are attempting to establish a time line to fill in some gaps from the time Rory was reported missing to the time that he was discovered in the river on Dec.18,” said Const. Tracy Wolbeck.

“We need to speak to anyone who has any information regarding Rory. We are actively investigating Rory’s disappearance but need the help of the public at this point.”

McGillivray had purchased a bus ticket to Hope in Kamloops. Wolbeck said the ticket was not for a specific date, so it’s unclear if or when he got on the bus.

The cause of death is unknown at this time, but police have ruled out foul play.

Anyone with information regarding McGillivray is asked to contact the Hope RCMP at 604-869-7750 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
