Man dead in Yellowknife alley, ‘no evidence of foul play’

Police say a man has been found dead in a downtown Yellowknife alley, but the circumstances are not thought to be suspicious.

RCMP found the man’s body in the 5000 block of the alley between 48 Street and 49 Street – near Moose FM’s building – having received a call just after 8am on Good Friday.

The man has been identified locally as Raymond Simpson, a 43-year-old from Gamètì.

Police – who have not confirmed the man’s identity – say they don’t yet know how he died, but their initial investigation “has not uncovered any evidence of foul play”.
