Police in Yellowknife believe the death of a local man over the weekend is not suspicious.
The body of an adult male, found by police attending a call late on Sunday afternoon, has been identified by acquaintances as David Jobin. However, RCMP say they can confirm neither the man’s identity nor the cause of death.
The man is believed to have been found outside, though police say it is too early to substantiate claims he may have frozen to death. The coroner’s office is now working with RCMP to determine what happened.
“There were no obvious signs of foul play,” said Yellowknife RCMP in a short statement on Monday. “No further information will be released at this time.”
