The Independent Investigations Office (IIO) of BC is seeking the assistance of the public to assit in the recent death of a man inside a Tim Hortons.
On November 26th, the Vancouver Police were called to the Tim Hortons located at Terminal Avenue and Station Street because a man was in the washroom for a long time. The police arrived around 6:00 pm and attempted to persuade the man to exit the washroom. When he did exit a short time later, an interaction occurred and the man became unresponsive and was pronounced dead shortly after.
There were witnesses and the IIO needs your help to find them, or for them to come forward with a statement. There are reportedly two men and two women who were at the Tim Hortons between 6:15pm and 6:45pm during the incident.
The IIO states the following description of the loyal Tim Hortons enthusiasts:
Two women, believed to be there together, are described as in their 20s or 30s. One is approximately 5’ 5” to 5’ 9” tall (165 to 175 centimetres) and was wearing a black, knee-length jacket, black tapered pants, white sneakers and a black face mask. The second woman is about 5’3” to 5’8” tall (160 to 173 centimetres) and wore a grey hoodie, white headscarf, black sweatpants, white socks, black sandals and a black face mask.
Two men were also present during this time period, separately. The first man is described as being between 6’0” and 6’2” tall (183 to 188 centimetres), and was wearing a black hooded jacket, light blue or light grey baseball hat, black slim pants, brown boots, light blue disposable surgical face mask and has a goatee, shown when the mask was briefly pulled down. He may have also been wearing glasses.
The last man appears to be between 5’7” and 5’9” tall (170 to 175 centimetres), and wore a green rain jacket, blue jeans, brown boots, black hoodie, navy baseball hat, and a white disposable face mask.
