Body found outside Richmond hotel

Staff at a restaurant made a frightening discovery Sunday night at the Sandman Hotel, on the 10000 block of St. Edwards Drive.

Mounties were called to the scene in north Richmond shortly after 9 p.m. when staff at a nearby restaurant reported finding a body.

The body is that of an Asian man in his late 20s or early 30s, and appears to be of Asian descent.

The Richmond RCMP's serious crimes unit continues to investigate, but as of Tuesday morning, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team hadn't yet taken over the file.

Investigators are asking for the public's help in identifying the man.

"We ask that anyone who may know who he is or has information about this incident, please call the Richmond RCMP at 604-278-1212 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
