DAWSON CREEK, B.C. — Cpl. Dave Tyreman has confirmed that a man turned himself in to Dawson Creek RCMP today for manslaughter, following the death of a man at a Hedley Concert in 2012.
On Jan. 12, Provincial Crown Counsel issued an arrest warrant for Levi Morris, a 25-year-old Fort St. John resident, for manslaughter. Just one day short of a week later, Morris turned himself in to Dawson Creek RCMP, and Tyreman says he is expected to appear in Provincial Court in Dawson Creek today.
The incident in question happened on Feb. 14, 2012 at the EnCana Events Centre. 28-year-old Jason Patrick Foster and a friend were involved in a fist fight with other men. Foster was found unconscious, and died in hospital.
Three men were arrested later on, but subsequently released.
Cpl. Tyreman says no further information will be released ‘in order to protect the integrity of the investigation and any further court proceedings.’
