RCMP cleared in Metchosin death

Independent Investigations Office of B.C. concluded that the incident could not be proved to be the officer’s fault.

West Shore RCMP were cleared of any wrongdoing in the death of a Metchosin woman after an incident on Aug. 8.

The 63-year-old woman died from injuries in hospital on Aug. 26.

A report released last Thursday reveals the RCMP were responding to a call from a hotel in Langford. An officer gave the woman a ride home, but on her way from the car to her door she fell on her driveway and broke one of her hips.

The woman was significantly intoxicated, according to hospital records.

After speaking with officers and one civilian witness, the Independent Investigations Office of B.C. concluded that the incident could not be proved to be the officer’s fault.

The matter has been dropped.
