Terrace RCMP investigating suspicious death of a man in Thornhill

Kamloops resident was found unresponsive early Sunday morning, died hours later

Terrace RCMP are asking for the public’s help in a suspicious death investigation early Sunday morning in Thornhill.

Around 5 a.m. on Nov. 10, police were dispatched to investigate a report of a man in the roadway on Thornhill Frontage Road, which runs parallel to the north side of Hwy 16.

Officers then located the man, identified as Blaine Frisk from Kamloops, who was found unresponsive. Frisk, who was in his 50s, was taken to the hospital by ambulance, but pronounced dead a few hours later. The cause of death has not been revealed.

Hours earlier, around 1:45 a.m., police received a call of an intoxicated person walking along Hwy 16 E. They were unable to locate the man, who Cst. Crystal Evelyn says was Frisk.

Police are asking the public to contact Terrace RCMP if they have dash camera footage of Hwy 16 and its parallel roads between midnight and 5 a.m., along the strip between Hwy 37 and the Thornhill sign.

Anyone who may have had contact with Frisk after 1 a.m., or knows any more information about what might have happened is asked to contact RCMP.

As this investigation remains open Terrace RCMP said no further information will be released.

The Terrace Standard has reached out to the family for comment.

Please call 250-638-7400 and reference file 19-12330, or report anonymously through Crime Stoppers by telephone at 1-800-222-TIPS or online at www.terracecrimestoppers.ca.
