RCMP have confirmed the death of a male found Wednesday near École McIsaac School is not being considered suspicious.
After an autopsy was conducted on the deceased, Manitoba RCMP determined the death was non-suspicious. It is not yet known if drugs or alcohol played a role in the male’s death – results of a toxicology report have not been completed.
“The autopsy has been completed and the death appears to be non-suspicious in nature. No criminality is suspected at this time,” said Manitoba RCMP Sgt. Paul Manaigre.
The male was first found unresponsive in the woods near Ross Creek and behind École McIsaac School Nov. 27 at about 10:20 a.m. Police were called to the scene and found the body. The identity of the deceased is not known, but it is known that they were not a staff member or student at the nearby school.
Officers from both Flin Flon and The Pas detachments, including Forensic Investigation Services, conducted an investigation into the matter. Some access lanes near the school, including parts of the walking and fitness trail and access to the Ross Creek footbridge, were blocked off as police investigated. The footbridge was reopened to the public Nov. 28.
