Identity of man found dead after Charlie Lake standoff confirmed by BC Coroners Service
CHARLIE LAKE – According to a press release issued by the BC Government, the main suspect involved in the standoff at Rimrock Road, who later died, has been identified by the BC Coroner’s Service as 33-year-old Mark Delawski.
At 11:45 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 31, the Fort St. John RCMP were called to a home for a possible domestic violence incident. The person who called later escaped from the home but a two-year-old remained inside with the suspect.
RCMP, along with the Emergency Response Team (ERT) attempted to make contact with the Delawski but could not engage. At roughly 10:30 p.m., the police entered the home and found the toddler unharmed and the man was found dead.
The investigation is ongoing.
