Police are investigating
Police are investigating the death of a young P.E.I. man who was attending a music festival in Nova Scotia.
Dylan Jonathan Avery Champion died Tuesday at the Halifax Infirmary.
“We are gathering informa- tion about the circumstances that led to the death of a 21-year-old man from Summerside…we want to understand how this happened,’’ says RCMP Sgt. Alain LeBlanc in Halifax.
“This must be a difficult time for the family…something very tragic – the death of a 21-yearold man.’
LeBlanc says an autopsy will be performed today.
Champion was attending the Evolve Music Festival in Antigonish last weekend.
While overdoses have been a problem at the annual electronic music festival, LeBlanc cautioned the public not to speculate on the cause of death.
“I do not think it would be helpful to speculate at all,’’ he said.
