The Vancouver police department is investigating the city’s 17th homicide of 2021, after it says an elderly man was found dead inside a home near West 3rd Avenue and MacDonald Street on Friday.

Police said they were called to the area around 11 a.m. on Friday and found the body of 77-year-old Justis Daniels.

“No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing,” said the VPD in a release.

The 1.4 hectare park has a field house, playground, tennis courts and a washroom. It also has a caretaker on site according to the City of Vancouver. Police did not say if that person was involved in the death.
