Persons of interest sought in connection to death of Gregory Wale

Police are seeking the public’s help with the investigation into the death of a Prince George man last weekend.

Investigators have acquired surveillance images of two men they believe to be persons of interest in the ongoing investigation into the death of 35-year-old Gregory Gareth Wale.

The first person of interest is described as:

  • First Nations male
  • Approximately 30 years old
  • Short dark hair with a scruffy mustache and beard

The second person of interest is described as:

  • First Nations male
  • Approximately 25 years old
  • Dark hair with stubble on his face

“This death was both tragic and unnecessary,” said Cpl. Craig Douglass, spokesperson for the Prince George RCMP.  “Our hope is that the identification of these two men will further the investigation and get us closer to providing Gregory Wale’s family with some closure.”

Wale was taken to the University Hospital of Northern B.C. following the altercation. However, he checked himself out of the hospital and was found dead in his home a day later.

Northern Health spokesperson Eryn Collins said that, due to privacy concerns, could not discuss the matter. However, she did say that, except under very specific circumstances (i.e. admission under Mental Health Act legislation), any individual has the right to make the choice to leave a hospital  facility.

If you know the identity of either of these persons, please contact the Prince George RCMP at (250)561-3300 or anonymously contact Crime Stoppers at 1(800)222-8477 or online at www.pgcrimestoppers.bc.ca(English only).  You do not have to reveal your identity to Crime Stoppers.  If you provide information that leads to an arrest, you could be eligible for a cash reward.
