Incident at In the vicinity of: PRINCE GEORGE BC VOR/DME (YXS)

A Nortech Data Services Ltd. Beech 58P (C-GEEK) from Fort St. John (CYXJ) to Vancouver, BC (CYVR) lost pressurization and experienced a right engine failure in the vicinity of Blue River. Pilot declared an emergency. Aircraft diverted to Prince George, BC (CYXS) and landed safely.
UPDATE: TSB Report#A15P0085: The Beech 58P, C-GEEK, had departed Fort St-John (CYXJ) IFR for Vernon (CYVK) and was established at FL210 with four pilots onboard, when indications for the right engine (Continental TSIO-520-WB) showed high cylinder head temperature (CHT). The pilot determined that pressurization at that altitude would not be maintained with only one engine. They elected to divert to Prince George (CYXS) and declared an emergency. The right engine started running rough and black smoke was emanating. The pilot shut it down and continued the flight with one engine inoperable (OEI). The aircraft landed at CYXS without further event. The number five cylinder had recently been replaced and it was found that the exhaust valve was sticking.
