Cape Breton Post - - PROVINCIAL -

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.
