Press releases from RCMP across the province. Unedited and straight from the source.
The human remains recovered from the bank of the North Saskatchewan River on Thursday, May 22, 2014 were successfully removed and transported to Saskatoon.
An autopsy is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, May 27, 2014.
The RCMP initially received a private message on May 22 via our RCMP Saskatchewan Facebook account regarding the discovery of human remains by canoeists traveling in the area. Our Divisional Operational Communication Centre made contact with both canoeists and dispatched Maidstone RCMP to the scene.
We would like to take this opportunity to inform the public that our Saskatchewan RCMP social media accounts are not monitored 24/7. We recognize that on rare occasions there may be extenuating circumstances that exist, but would like to stress that in emergency situations, the public should call 9-1-1, or, in non-emergencies, call 310-RCMP, or contact your local detachment/police service.
Further updates will be provided once they become available.
On May 22, 2014 at 2:10 pm, Maidstone RCMP responded to a call of a body on the river bank of the North Saskatchewan River. Canoeists in the area came across the body on the river bank.
