Foul play has been ruled out as a cause of death after a 59-year-old man was found dead on Fitzwilliam Street in Nanaimo on Boxing Day.

Nanaimo RCMP say their serious crime unit has completed its investigation into the man’s death overnight Dec. 26 in the 400 block of Fitzwilliam in the Old City Quarter. A forensic autopsy has been completed.

Police followed up on reports of loud noises late on Christmas night in the area, but investigators “have concluded that these reports were not connected” to the man’s death, the release notes.
