Deaths in City not suspicious

  • Jul. 15, 2015 3:02 p.m.

Two unrelated deaths that occurred in Red Deer last Saturday have been deemed not suspicious.

On the morning of July 11th, members of the Red Deer City RCMP detachment and EMS were dispatched to a location within the City of Red Deer after receiving a report of an adult male lying on the ground

Upon arrival at the scene near the 4300 block of 49th Ave., police located the 53 year-old male. EMS personnel examined him and confirmed that he was deceased. Members of the RCMP Red Deer City detachment, Forensic Identification Services and RCMP Major Crimes Unit – South are investigating the matter.

Police have identified the deceased and his next of kin have been notified.

Yesterday, an autopsy was conducted on the 53-year-old male at the Calgary Medical Examiner’s Office. The Medical Examiner determined the circumstances of the death were not suspicious or criminal in nature. No further updates will be provided regarding this investigation.

As well, shortly before 4 p.m. on July 11th, Red Deer RCMP responded to a report of a deceased woman in a treed area north of 60th St. and 57th Ave.

The death of the 32-year-old Red Deer woman is not considered suspicious, and is not related to the sudden death of a male earlier the same day in a different area of Red Deer.

RCMP will not be releasing the name of the deceased woman out of respect for the family’s privacy.
