Deceased male identified in Charlie Lake standoff…

Prince George, BC: The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a man who died following a standoff with the RCMP at Charlie Lake on Jan. 31, 2016.

The man is Mark Delawski, aged 33, of Charlie Lake, a small community about eight kilometres west of Fort St. John.


At about 11:45 a.m. on Jan. 31, 2016, a family member of Mr. Delawski left the home and reported concerns to the RCMP. Mr. Delawski and a small child remained in the residence.

RCMP attended at the residence but could not engage with Mr. Delawksi. Shortly after 10:30 p.m. members of the Emergency Response Team entered the home and found the child unharmed but Mr. Delawski deceased.

The BC Coroners Service and the Independent Investigations Office (IIO) continue to investigate this death.

The mandate of the IIO is to investigate whether any offences may have been committed by the police officers involved.

The mandate of the BC Coroners Service in such cases is broader, and the coroner’s investigation may look at the events which led up to the final fatal outcome and whether there are reasonable and practical recommendations that could be made which might prevent future deaths in similar circumstances.

Released by BC Coroners Service.
