The family of a man found dead in an East Vancouver storm drain say the pieces surrounding his death don’t add up.
26-year-old Charles Oudie was found Sunday by a passerby who noticed his clothes on the ground.
It’s still unclear how or when he went in.
His sister Elisha says there are too many unanswered questions.
“They found nothing in the drain with my brother, so why would they assume he went in there to get something? He didn’t even have his items on him. He just uses his cell phones and his wallet, and they weren’t even on him, so what was he getting in there?”
Doesn’t make sense, says sister
“That’s not my brother. My brother is a straight A student. He’s smart. I know for a fact he would not go in a sewer for a lighter. Not even for a cell phone.”
Adding to the mystery, Oudie’s wallet was found at a friend’s house, one of his phones turned up in North Vancouver, and a second phone is still missing.
“There are so many gaps in this story, and the timeline is really messed up.”
Vancouver Police initially called the death suspicious, but have released no information since then.
The family says they think it’s foul play and they have set up a Facebook page pleading for information.
