UPDATE: Mother of man who died in fall from trail waiting for answers

Foul play not suspected in death of 33-year-old Langford man

Police are continuing their investigation into the death of a man whose body was found early Friday morning by a jogger in Langford.

The B.C. Coroner Service confirmed Monday the deceased man as Langford resident Christopher Tousignant.

Tousignant’s mother, Debbie Thiele-Tibeault, told CTV Vancouver Island that her 33-year-old son went to buy cigarettes Thursday night but did not return. She wondered whether he may have bent down to pick up some change on the ground and fallen head first from the path.

She’s waiting for more answers as West Shore RCMP’s general investigation section and the B.C. Coroner Service continue to look into the case.

Tousignant’s body was located on a trail off Whitehorn Place, near Millstream Village, in Langford. The area is described as a short, but steep rocky trail. B.C. Ambulance paramedics confirmed his death shortly after 6:45 a.m.

Foul play was not initially suspected, but West Shore RCMP Const. Alex Berube asked anyone with information about the situation to contact the local detachment at 250-474-2264.
