Christopher William Lauzon, 37, a resident of Nanaimo, was found dead by a homeowner Sunday at about 3 p.m.

Coroners service are continuing their investigation and are asking anybody with information on the activities of Lauzon prior to the discovery of his body to contact Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.nanaimocrimestoppers.com.
