Prince George family looks for answers after man dies in police custody

A man who was hospitalized after being arrested by RCMP in Prince George, B.C., has died, leaving behind a large family in grief.

Everett Patrick was taken off life support on Friday and died early Monday morning at the Prince George hospital, according to his sister Miranda Thomas.

The Independent Investigations Office of B.C., which is responsible for investigating police-related incidents of death or serious harm, would not confirm Patrick's identity but said its team is investigating to determine what role, if any, the RCMP's actions or inaction may have played in his death.

Patrick was hospitalized on April 12 after being taken into police custody and went into "medical distress," according details from the police watchdog organization.
