Investigation into Kwitzil Lake Tragedy Continues
By 250 News
Prince George, B.C.- RCMP say they will be examining the 1994 GMC Jimmy SUV which rolled into Kwitzil (Gravel Pit ) Lake on the weekend, resulting in the deaths of 17 year old Kendall Gabriella Moore, and 19 year old Craig Allen Wood.
The two were at a post prom party at the lake, as were hundreds of others.
Autopsies and toxicology tests will be conducted on both victims, and the Prince George RCMP's Forensic Identification Section will continue to examine the 2 door SUV including a mechanical exam on the vehicle in an effort to determine what caused the vehicle to roll into the lake.
Police would like to see any photos or videos that were taken of the incident by those who were attending the party. The images could help police determine the facts in this tragic event. Investigators would also like to speak to anyone who may have spoken to either of the deceased in the early hours prior to the tragedy.
In a release issued today, Prince George RCMP are also advising the public there is a lot of speculation and rumour about this incident "Some of these rumours have surfaced through both traditional and social media. There are formal investigations underway that will determine the facts." reads the release, "The police and our partners must make determinations based on facts, not rumours. Once a determination has been made, any enforcement, prevention or awareness action will be taken if necessary."

Sitting in a restaurant with my wife last night, we heard it being loudly and profusely being aired out by the folks at the table next to us.
This is a good example of how willing people are to believe almost anything, just because "somebody said it", with no consideration for waiting for the facts.
condolences to the families involved.
I think something has to be done about these bush parties...bad things always happen. There's no getting around it:(
What do you propose? Police stationed at every possible location to stop them from occuring? Passing yet another law or laws to further curtail personal freedoms in our already over-burdened system?
There is such a thing as personal choice. You cannot use legislation against stupidity, accidents, suicides, murders, etc to stop them. If you could, they wouldn't still be happening.
We live in a world where life and happiness and prosperity and good things are not a guarantee. And no amount of rules and regulations can guarantee those things to young or old.
Without any disrespect to the kids or families involved, trace back anything that happens, and you will find that it did so because of specific choices made by individuals involved. That is a philosophical verity and fact of life.
Just like you and the other posters on O250, I have an opinion, it may be different from yours or maybe the same. But it's an opinion.
I am sad for the kids and sad for the families. That's universal.
I'm tired of how every post gets anti-posted here by the anti-everything thinker.
I'm Sunsetter and that's MY opinion.
Loss is a terrible thing to go through, tragic all around, traumatic for those at the scene .
I wish strength for the families of the kids that died.
Nothing really matters though as we lost two young lives. Nothing can be said to relieve the pain and suffering both families are going through at this time.
I heard the Blues Underground had something for the under 19 teen crowd a while back. Lets provide more social options and places for our kids in this city, so they don't have to drive over 30 kms out of this city to party in the bush, or at least reduce these occasions.
