Body of third man found after two others died when truck swept into B.C. river

RCMP confirm the body of a third man has been pulled from a river on southern Vancouver Island, west of Victoria.

A statement from Staff Sgt. Brett Sinden says the body was recovered Tuesday afternoon along the banks of the Sooke River.

Sinden says criminality is not suspected.

Three 20-year-old men, identified by police last week as Cory Mills, Eric Blackmore and AJ Jensen, set out Friday night from a home in the community of Sooke during a torrential rainstorm that led to flood warnings and watches over several parts of Vancouver Island.

The truck carrying the trio was found battered and empty in the Sooke River on Sunday and the bodies of two men were discovered downriver later that day.

A search continued for the third man and Sinden says the BC Coroners Service is also investigating to determine how, where and when the men died.
